Very simple
--Fiesta Chicken

Fiesta Chicken
Home Cooking 2005 Recipe Annual Copyright 2005

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix I make my own so I can control the sodium
Cracker crumbs
1 cup cheddar cheese I used 2% cheddar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking dish. Pound chicken breasts slightly to flatten them to a uniform size. Coat chicken breasts with sour cream. Combine cracker crumbs and taco seasoning mix. Dredge chicken in mixture. Place in prepared dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes.

Serves 4.

I've been completely exhausted the past couple of weeks so something this simple was just what I needed. It was nothing incredibly special (I seem to say that a lot these days) but it used ingredients I had lying around and it was super quick. I didn't need to cook mine nearly as long as the recipe suggested. It seemed to go over well too - my son even asked for seconds.

I'm in that weird place again where nothing I eat is all that satisfying. Maybe that is why I'm really struggling with next week's menu. Hundreds of cookbooks and I was coming up blank last night. I came up with a few ideas but I may scrap everything and start over.

Blast From The Past: Deep-Dish Chili Pie from February 2006. Maybe I'll make that next week since pizza crust and cheese are on sale.

Question of the Day: Anyone else burned out?

This looks really good and easy, thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

Yes to the question about being burned out. I've been in a sort of blah phase for a while, since the holidays. Part is the seasonal weather, I think, lots of grey days. I go through phases like this a lot through the year with my cooking. I have tons of recipes I want to try, but not always the desire to actually try them, if that makes sense :)

Would you post your homemade taco seasoning recipe sometime? I always buy the packets at the grocery, but would love to make up some and have on hand. Thanks!
