Happy Halloween!

Halloween is always soo much fun. Last night I found this great recipe for chicken.

Southwestern Chicken

1 envelope GoodSeasons Italian Dressing mix

1/2 cup oil

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. cumin

Mix all ingredients in a plastic bag and marinate 4-6 skinless boneless chicken breasts.

Grill until done.

Slice into strips and serve in burritos, quesedilla's, or on a salad.

It's good enough to eat alone too.

We had such a great time on our trip October 7-11, 2008 that I forgot all about cooking and obviously blogging. I do want to share my favorite thing to eat from the trip. They serve it at the New Orleans Cafe, or you can get it at the Blue Bayou, it is the Monte Cristo Sandwich. If you don't know what it is, it is a ham, turkey, and cheese sandwich on french toast and then deep fried. They sprinkle it with powdered sugar and put some raspberry jam on the side for dipping. OOhhh it is heavenly. Unfortunately due to the nature of my pregnancy I was only able to enjoy it for about 20 minutes. Oh well, it was worth it!

Mone Cristo Sandwich
Ingredients for 1 servings

1 1/2 cup
flour all purpose, sifted
1/4 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
baking powder
1 1/3 cup water
1 egg

1 ounce Sliced white turkey
1 ounce Sliced Swiss cheese
1 ounce ham sliced
2 slices Egg bread

recipe preparation
Sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Add water to beaten egg, then add to flour mixture and mix well. Set aside. Make a sandwich using turkey first, then Swiss cheese and then ham. Cut sandwich into quarters using tooth picks to hold sandwich together. Dip sandwich in egg batter and fry in 360@ canola oil until golden brown. Remove toothpicks and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with raspberry jelly or maple syrup.

I have to admit I made this once and it was pretty good but nothing compares to eating it at Disneyland!
