A Hands Free Recipe...

Since you're babywearing, your hands are free, right? Isn't it great to NOT have a baby trying to climb up your legs while you're in the kitchen trying to make a healthy meal? I put Kaelin on my back to try to cook (and yes, mommies, putting frozen chicken nuggets in the oven and microwaving corn does count as cooking!). Here is something I tried tonight as an experiment: Barbecue Chicken Nachos. You will need:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. salsa
1 c. mild cheddar cheese, shredded
3 Tbsp. barbecue sauce
1/2 packet of taco seasoning
1 bag of tortilla chips (I used the Baked Tostitos)

Cook chicken however you like (I put them in the crock pot with some chicken stock and the taco seasoning). Chop chicken up and toss with barbecue sauce. Pour the tortilla chips into a 9 X13 pan and sprinkle chopped chicken over the top of the chips, next drizzle the salsa and sour cream over the top of the chips and chicken. Lastly, sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes.

This was my kitchen experiment for the day and it was pretty tasty! If you want to get a little more gourmet, check out All Recipes. There are recipes of ALL KINDS!
