I am typically a beef girl. Chicken, well, usually just kinda skeeves me out. But recently, I have been wanting to mix it up a bit and chicken has served that need well. Last night, the hubs was to be gone for a softball game with pizza and beer to follow. Well hellz yeah! I'll just cook a little ol' meal at home for little ol' me. It was going to consist of smoked salmon over a mixed green salad with all the appropriate salad fixins'. Easy-peasie-lemon-squeezie. Well, said hubs got the game time wrong and now I had him to feed too. Since he doesn't like salmon or really seafood in general, out came the only meat in the fridge I had thawed. (thank you earlier shopping to Healthy Home Market and Trader Joes!) WHICH BTW - please excuse this side note - Trader Joes DOES CARRY GRASSFED GROUND BEEF! I had been hearing this rumor but had never seen it with my own two eyes. I will stick with Proffitt Farms. But, for those of you that don't want to make the commitment of a large grassfed cow purchase (or you need grassfed beef in a pinch), you can purchase it at Trader Joes. Maybe if we all go in and ask about other cuts of grassfed beef they will magically start to appear. Stranger things have happened. End side note.
OK, where was I? Thawed meat. Right chicken breast! I also had a bag of tomatillos, jalapenos and tomatoes that needed to be used ASAP. So off to the chopping block. I had more of a roasted veggie and chicken dish in mind. Well, that turned out to be Chicken Tomatillo Chili. I love a happy accident!
