Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner!

Welcome to Friday's Five Favorites!  We decided to make Fridays a little more fun around here by every Friday giving you a taste of some of our favorites.  This week I'm going to feature our top five favorite chicken dinners.  My dinner group used to tease me a little because I always wanted to use chicken and I admit it probably is my favorite meat to cook with.

Anyway, here's this week's top five, in no particular order!

Spicy Romano Chicken!

This one has been one our most popular posts and for good reason.  This is one tasty dish!  The white cream sauce has quite the kick to it that will give you taste buds a good buzz.  Add your favorite pasta, green onions, chicken and sauteed mushrooms.  Yes, this recipe is definitely making our top five. Go here for the full Spicy Romano Chicken recipe.

Chicken Flautas with Sour Cream Salsa!

Another one of our most popular posts and probably my absolute favorite!  You can't go wrong with this Tex-Mex recipe.  You'll love the crunch of the flaky crust and then the yummy chicken and cheese mixture inside.  The best part of this meal is the Sour Cream Salsa that combines two my favorite flavors lime and cilantro! Go here for this amazing recipe.

White Sauce Chicken Enchiladas!

Creamy, dreamy white sauce chicken enchiladas, makes my mouth water just looking at it.  This recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser in your home! Go here for the full recipe!

Sweet & Sour Chicken!

The saying opposites attract is certainly true in this case.  The sweet and sour flavor, and the soft texture of the rice with the contrasting crunch of the veggies mix well together.
Go here for the recipe for this scrumptious dinner!

And here's something new! This is also one our families all time favorite chicken dinners. This is a extremely easy recipe, you pretty much throw some ingredients, that you most likely always have around, in a crock pot and anxiously await it's goodness.  It's one of my best go-to meals!

Salsa Chicken Burritos!

Here's what you'll need:
2-3 lbs of cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups of your favorite salsa
2 tbs of taco seasoning
1 (8oz) block of cream cheese
1 can of corn
1 can of drained black beans
shredded cheese

This is a recipe that you can play with and add or subtract ingredients easily.  I've added various rice mixtures before to these burritos, which makes your meat go further.  If your eaters are pretty picky try leaving out the corn and beans.  You can also control how much flavor it has by using either a mild or hot salsa.

Start by throwing your cooked chicken in the crock pot with the 1 1/2 cup of salsa.  Cook on low for 3 or 4 hours.  Once it's cooked shred the chicken with two forks.

Next add the block of cream cheese and let it cook for about another hour.

Finally add in the drained can of corn and black beans, stir them in and let them warm up while you grate the cheese and prepare the tortillas.

Fill the tortillas and enjoy a yummy meal!

Check back with us next week to hear about that week's top five favorites!
