Santa Fe Chicken

It was fairly quiet Monday. I found time to read this morning and managed to finish the book I started last week. It wasn't that long a book, I just had trouble finding time to read!

A friend is visiting for a few days so after letting her sleep in a bit, we finally made a grocery run. I have a wonderful selection of leftover BBQ samples, albeit all have a bite out of them . However, we also needed fruit and veggies and such. Upon our return, I set about turning leftover pieces of BBQ chicken into a skillet dish I call Santa Fe Chicken for our dinner.

That recipe originally came from a magazine ad for salsa (I don't recall which brand). I made it fairly often when that ad was running and I had kept a copy with my cookbooks. Somewhere along the line, it got misplaced and, for whatever reason, I hadn't made it in a long while. (Don't we all go through those sort of phases?) These days, I simply make it from memory. How close it is to the original, I can't recall!!

Santa Fe Chicken

1 - 1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I cut mine in bite-sized chunks)
4-5 medium potatoes, cut into chunks about 3/4" square
1- 1 1/2 bell peppers, chopped (any color will do)
1 - 1/2 large onions, chopped
1 can corn
2 12-oz jars of medium salsa
Crushed garlic, to taste

****I like to pre-cook my potatoes, onions and peppers in the microwave before dumping them in the pot.

Simply dump it all in one big pot, stir well and let it stew a bit to meld the flavors.

We serve this with a nice loaf of fresh bread and it makes a fairly easy, filling meal.

Okay, now what to do with the rest of those leftovers. Got to think of something interesting!!! After all, we're serving guests!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually
something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
