Aye Carumba! Jalepeno Chicken!

Hola amigos y amigas! Welcome to another exciting entry to Everyday Meals. Today, we are diving deep into Mexican cuisine. We are taking plain old chicken and kicking it up 100%. Today's dish is called Jalapeno Chicken. Yes, it's flavorful, spicy, and will probably leave you with heartburn later on tonight. But trust me when I say it will be worth it! Let's meet in the kitchen and make us some dinner!

Jalapeno Chicken

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 6 jalapeno peppers, or to taste, seeded and chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 pound chicken tenders, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon chicken seasoning blend, or to taste
  • 1/2 (10 ounce) can pina colada mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 can or bottle bock beer

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Cook and stir the jalapeno peppers and onion until tender, about 8 minutes.
  3. Remove the vegetables from the skillet and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the hot skillet.
  4. Sprinkle the chicken tenders with chicken seasoning.
  5. Cook the chicken and stir in the olive oil until slightly golden brown and no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.
  6. Transfer the chicken to a bowl.
  7. Return the jalapeno peppers and onions to the skillet, and stir in the pina colada mix and sour cream.
  8. Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes; stir in the chicken, and mix in the bock beer.
  9. Simmer until the flavors have blended and the sauce has slightly thickened, 15 to 30 more minutes.
  10. Enjoy!

Well, enjoy your night folks. I will try my hardest to come back tomorrow and post for you all. Remember, Thursdays and Fridays are my toughest time to be online. I will catch you on the flip side though. Adios!
