I went to my Mums on Monday, could be the last time for a while that I’ll be able to do that, so I stayed over night..
After we had been out for an epic scamper I offered to make dinner, again!!
She had some chicken thighs in the fridge, so I decided to use them, even as I was making it I didn’t really know what I was going to do, I came up with
Taco chicken bake:
The Dorito topping was an after thought as it was cooking, I popped round the shop to get a bag, initially just to eat with it..
I cooked the onions and peppers, added the seasoning and then the chicken..
Then I put in half a tin of tomatoes.
added half a tin of mixed chilli taco beans and some water.
as it was cooking I was going to boil some rice, but decided on a whim to chuck it into the dish and cook it that way instead.
I put it in the oven with a lid on, if I had the space to store it, I’d buy one of those shallow Le Creuset pans, I really like using them..
and baked it until the rice was done.
Then I crumbled up the doritos, added some cheese
and put it back in the oven to melt the cheese.
I thought it turned out rather well considering I really did make it up as I went a long..
It tasted nice too, washed down with a bottle of wine..
In the morning I took the boy for a scamper on the beach..
I wish I could do that every morning, it’s so nice to have an empty head for an hour..
