#OMGoodness! What’s not to love? Chicken | Garlic | Onions | Rice and ready in 30 minutes or less!
For those who know me well, know that chicken and garlic are something of a staple in my kitchen. I’ve often boasted, “I can do anything with chicken!” Top that off with some garlic — chopped, minced, dried chips, powder, different types and colors — you name it, and I’m a happy girl! Oh yeah, and fried chicken? Don’t even get this Georgia girl started! I love me some fried chicken!
This is a recipe I posted on Recipe.com (formerly RecipeZaar.com) back in December 2007. It’s still a favorite in my house, and a favorite of my not so kiddy kids. When we all lived under the same roof, this dish was asked for often. It’s on the degree of difficulty scale as easy and the time it takes comes in at 30 minutes or under. That’s a winning combo in a working for a living household and a homes with kids.
Success Boil-In-Bag White Rice
Garlic Onion Chicken
What You Need
- 1 1/2-2 lbs boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes (or boneless breast)
Tip: Slightly frozen chicken cuts easier.
- 2 medium onions, diced (smaller or larger are ok — you can never have too many!)
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder (Dollar store garlic powder works great! Fresh garlic does NOT.)
- 1/3 cup margarine (Shedd’s Spread Country Crock® works great! Butter does NOT…It burns!)
- salt & pepper to taste.
How It’s Done
- Add 1/2 of the margarine in a large frying pan over medium heat until melted.
- Add the diced onions and 1 tsp garlic powder to pan and cook until soft and clear.
- Add chicken cubes and remaining margarine and garlic powder.
- Continue to cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through (about 10-15 minutes).
NOTE: Margarine and garlic powder amounts may be altered as desired. If you decide to use butter, be careful not to let it burn.
How It’s Done
- Cook according to package directions.
Tonight I used Success Boil-In-Bag® for convenience and I gotta tell you, it was perfect.
The beauty of this dish isn’t that it’s only quick, it gets better overnight! So, grab a storage container and slap the leftovers in the fridge until tomorrow. I promise you, you will NOT be sorry. I personally prefer a Ziploc® container, but you can use any type you like. I find they stand up well to washing and reuse, and I like that they tend to last for months.
This is a dish that will be a favorite no matter who you cook it for. It’ll be something they ask for often. It’s simple and tasty, and addicting!
Happy cooking #SeriousYum!
The other day I was sitting and playing with one of my latest obsessions, and I’d lay odds you probably know it well. It’s one of those places that when you enter, you’re sucked in and have a hard time walking away from it. You tell yourself, “I’ll just do it for 10 minutes, then I’ll do the dishes. What’s 10 minutes? Just real quick.” Yeeeeah …no. Two hours later you glance up over the laptop as if you’re trying not to get caught by those dirty dishes in the sink. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m talking about Pinterest. It’s a gal’s dream for anything they want to indulge in and in my case, I have a problem. I’m over indulging and doing it everywhere. I need an intervention.
Ok, where was I going with that again? Oh yeah, a recipe. But, this was no ordinary recipe. It was deemed a “Melt in Your Mouth Chicken” recipe. Read more…
