Share A Meal Monday

THANK YOU to everyone that linked up last week! TEN links on the first week, that's awesome! I got some great ideas and I really liked it that a lot of you linked up with meals you make often, or that are easy and cheap. Everyone kept saying, "It's not really fancy but....." but aren't THOSE the meals we're actually going to make?!! Thanks for linking up and I look forward to this week's menus too!

Here is a recipe I use often. I really like it because you can dress it up or keep it simple. I got it from my Granny Todd so that makes it extra special. I'll give you the recipe my Granny originally gave to me and then the options I added to jazz it up a bit.

Mexicali Chicken
chicken breasts cut in strips or chicken pieces
1 onion sliced
red and yellow peppers, sliced
3 tsp chili powder
1 can tomato soup

Brown chicken, stir in onions, peppers and chili powder. Stir in tomato soup. Put in a baking dish and bake at 350 until chicken is tender. Serve over rice.

I add some cumin and cayenne pepper because my husband likes a little more spice and flavor. I also really like to add a cup or so of frozen corn and a can of kidney or black beans. I then top it with some sour cream and salsa.


  1. Oh! I cant wait to try that chicken! My family LOVES spicy mexi things!

  2. Oops, I did it wrong. Do you know how to fix it? I don't.

  3. I love this Michelle! Such a great idea! Maybe next week I'll link-up too instead of just stealing all the ideas :O). I made your Mexicali Chicken tonight... it was AWESOME! Always great to have some fresh ideas. Thanks


Straight up now tell me...
