We had some left over Raclette cheese. So I grilled some chicken breasts and melted a nice thick slice of the cheese on top in the oven.

Chorizo Stuffed Chicken with Brussels sprouts

Chorizo stuffed chicken

This year we see a lot of Brussels sprouts in the stores and since we like them a lot (they are healthy too) I look for meals to prepare with them.

Chicken: For this I pounded some chicken tenders flat and rolled up some chorizo (store-bought) in them. The rolls were held together with tooth pics and pan fried until done. Before serving the chicken I cut up the rolls into bite-sized pieces.

Brussels sprouts: I just tossed them with chopped onions and carrots, added some salt/pepper and olive oil, and then put them in the oven at 400F for 30 minutes (time may need to be adjusted depending on the size of the Brussels sprouts).

Mango Chicken

We love mango here, so here is a quick and easy chicken dish. Just had it last week.

Chicken: I started this with some chicken breast, so to make the peaces thinner I butterfly-cut them. Lightly salt & pepper, fry till golden brown; while chicken is frying chop up some garlic and ginger and saute until its soft, then add peeled & sliced mango and green chili. Fry a little before adding some chicken stock (I just use the canned stuff). Finally add the chicken to the mix and let simmer until the chicken is totally done. Before serving sprinkle some curry powder on top.
Broccoli: steamed.

While simmering in the pan:

Plated with the broccoli: For some additional color/texture/flavor add some finely diced carrots and chopped almond.
