Multiple Dishes Using Chicken - Great Recipes!

Multiple Dishes using Chicken

4 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
Slice each chicken breast into thin strips and saute in a pan with stick margarine. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.
Stir to keep from over browning, cook until tender. This is your basic chicken for the dishes.

Chicken Alfredo Roll-Ups
20ct corn tortillas
small can sliced mild green chilies
2 jars Alfredo sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups chicken
Warm tortillas in 3 tablespoonful oil in small saucepan. Do not overheat, the tortillas will get hard, and you don't want this to happen. Heat just to
bubbling around the edges. Repeat with each tortilla until all 20 are warm. Use a glass baking dish, 11x14 rectangle, lay one tortilla out, add a couple
of strips of chicken and about a teaspoonful of chilies, roll up and slide to one end of pan. Repeat this step until all tortillas are rolled. Open both jars
of Alfredo sauce and empty into saucepan. Add salt, pepper and a tablespoon of margarine, heat until warm. Pour over tortillas, sprinkle Parmesan cheese
on top and bake in oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

10 ct large flour tortillas
2 bell peppers
large sweet yellow onion
8 oz. package shredded cheddar cheese
1 to 1&1/2 cups chicken
sour cream
Slice bell peppers and onion, saute in small skillet until tender, using a small amount of oil or margarine. Remove tortillas from package, lay on plate and
cover with kitchen towel, microwave about 1 minute to heat. If your chicken has been refrigerated, warm in microwave or skillet. Arrange chicken, onions
and peppers, cheese and sour cream in center of tortillas, roll up and enjoy!
