Naked Chicken Burrito Bowls

I promised you a very delicious recipe using the Cilantro Rice and this is a great one. I saw it over at Running Away? I'll help you pack. Alexis has some incredible recipes, very entertaining posts, giveaways and many other great things.  This one had me hooked with the title and it did not let me down.  It was so delicious and a great hit at our house.  I adapted it a bit to feed my family of six. The kids loved the idea that they got to make their own.
Naked Chicken Burrito Bowls
4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 packet taco seasoning
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1-2 avocados, peeled and sliced
1-2 diced tomatos
diced onion
sour cream
Mix taco seasoning with water as directed on package.  Place chicken breasts in a large resealable plastic bag, pour seasoning mixture over top and turn to coat.  Refrigerate a minimum of 2 hours to all day. (I ended up marinating mine for 24 hours)
Make Cilantro Rice (Recipe here)(or use plain rice tossed with 2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro and 3 Tablespoons lime juice)
Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade.  Grill chicken. When chicken is thoroughly cooked transfer to a cutting board and cut into small pieces.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.(optional).
Heat beans in microwave or in a small sauce pan.  You can add a little olive oil and minced garlic. 
Assemble burrito bowls: in each bowl, layer rice, chicken, beans, cheese, avocados, onions and tomatoes. Top with salsa and sour cream.
**Later we made quesadillas with the leftovers. 
YUM!!! Thanks Alexis for a new family favorite!!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
