WIAW #6 – Green Chile Chicken Stew

Hello all! Happy Wednesday! You know what that means, it’s time for another WIAW!

Thanks Jenn for hosting!

First off, let me tell you about how Tim has made us some really great dinners this week!

On Sunday I attempted to some sort of meal planning for the week but only ended making two things. Loaded quinoa cups, I took this recipe but instead of frying them up like hamburger patties I divided the mix up in to 9 muffin cups and baked at 375 for 20 minutes. Like in this recipe.

Super yummy for breakfast!

Super yummy for a post workout breakfast!

I was also in the mood for some green chile stew. Tim has been under the weather, and there’s nothing like a good dose of hot green chile to knock the sickness right out of you!

Traditionally this recipe is made with pork, but I didn’t have any, and didn’t want to get out of my pj’s to go to the store Sunday morning. The chicken worked out great, and lightened it up as well. I think I will continue to make it this way from now on.

    That looks fantastic! It’s summer here, so stew is the last thing on my mind, but every now and then, it’s exactly what I want. I’ve never really worked out how to stew chicken, so I appreciate the recipe.
