Good Chicken

My favourite dish at the moment has to be Acapulco Chicken, a wonderful combination of mexican flavours and easy cooking. Though you can vary it however you wish, AllRecipes lists the following as the core ingredients:
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder, divided
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1 large tomato, cut into chunks
  • 10 drops hot pepper sauce
Now I tend to ignore the directions of cutting the chicken into pieces- even better is to leave them as whole halves and then whack all the toppings on top, pizza-style. Salsa or sauce first, then capsicum, onion, cheese and jalapenos is my normal way of having it- although I have also had it with avacado as well, which was surprisingly good, considering I don't like avacado.

Cooking is damn easy- once you've whacked the toppings on your chicken, put it in the oven at 180 for 15 minutes. Bing, and you're done. Enjoy!
