Yesterday I was shopping at a Food 4 Less (owned by Kroger/Ralph's). They were demonstrating Chef Merito Chicken seasoning by simply cooking some cut up chicken tenders in the seasoning w/ a bit of oil. I had a taste of the chicken on a toothpick. The seasoning was only $1.88 for the small 3 oz. bottle...so I decided to cook some cut up chicken tenders for today's lunch which was just the chicken, warmed corn tortillas and lettuce, cheese & taco sauce. After eating 2 tacos, I was full but had left over chicken. The recipe is what I did with the left over chicken.
Cut up chicken into small bit size pieces and add 1 teasp. seasoning powder-mix up with hands to coat.
Cook chicken in the oil until done (no longer pink)-the seasoning makes it look yellow. Remove chicken from pan and set aside-add bell pepper & onion to soften in the same pan/skillet.
While doing the above-boil some water a medium size saucepan & add 1 teaspoon of the seasoning-when a nice boil is going, add Fideo & cook about 6 minutes-drain and return to the pan. Add the chicken, soups, peppers & onion & about 1 cup of canned or frozen corn. Stir all together & pour into oil sprayed 9" square casserole dish. Top with crushed corn chips & Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. No need for the cilantro-I explained that in my intro-LOL-unless you really want to make it pretty.
