Approximate Prep and Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Approximate Cost: $14.30 or $3.58 per serving
Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
12 Chicken tenders ($6.60)
1 large onion (.40)
6 cloves of garlic (.35
1 corn ear (.30)
3 each. Yukon, red and purple gourmet potatoes ($1.60)
2 cups Chicken stock or broth ($1.25)
2 Avocados ($2.00)
¼ cup (or to taste) of Angie’s Basting Oil (see my link below) ($1.50)
1 tbsp. Angie’s Dried Seasoning (see my link below) (.30)
Salt and pepper to taste
Clean and season the tenders with ½ tbsp. of my dried seasoning and 1 tbsp. of basting oil.
Cook the corn for about 5 to 7 minutes in salted boiling water. Drain, wait until the corn is cool and then cut the kernels off the cob. Set aside.
(In this recipe I used roasted potatoes that I cooked the day before. If you don’t want to spend the time doing that, just cook the potatoes with the corn)
Chop the onion and garlic, sauté briefly in basting oil, then add the kernels and potatoes to brown.
Pan roast the tenders in basting oil in batches until brown. Remove from the pan.
Add the chicken stock and any basting oil left to the same pan, to take advantage of the flavorful caramelized juices of the chicken. Stir until the sauce is reduce in half.
Add the vegetables and chicken tenders, stir for a minute until all ingredients are mixed well.
Slice your avocados and season with fresh salt and pepper. Done you are ready to plate.
