This would be a great gift

$15.50 for The Original Whiskey Ball - Shipping Included

($25 Value)


This a wonderful low cost recipe. I made them without the Rol-Tel because I'm not a huge tomato fan and they turned out great. I used the leftovers to make Barbecue Chicken Wraps (inspired by Red Robin).


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp seasoned salt 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (Rotel)
1 medium onion, sliced 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into strips

 Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken strips in a greased 13×9 baking dish. In a small bowl combine the oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, and salt. Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat. Next add the tomatoes, peppers, and onions to the dish and stir to combine. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
