I would like to say that all of my recipes that I label "ugly, yet tasty" can be blamed on me not owning a fancy camera, but in all honesty, they are just ugly.
This can be served on whatever you want, today I chose chicken.
Scott and I aren't really chicken people, and I was originally going to use this on pork chops, but we just had Super Fancy Crock Pot Pork Chops yesterday, so I didn't want to overkill.
This is so easy, and packs so much flavor. While we were eating we were discussing on what else we could put this on in the future, and Scott suggested rice or pasta, if you didn't want to use meat.
What I used:
2 tbl butter
1 10-ish oz can of Cream of Mushroom
1 10-ish oz can of Cream of Shrimp
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 lb of cooked, peeled shrimp (or raw and cook it your own self if you'd rather cook than watch the Astros play)
1 little can of green chilis
I first seasoned the chicken with Lawry's, garlic powder, and onion powder, beat the smack out of them with my brand new mallet thing, and cooked them almost through.
I then stuck them in a some kind of sized pan....
I then melted the butter (in the same pan where I Just cooked the chicken, so we all probably have salmonella), poured the COM, COS, and the can of chilis, stirred them all about, then added the softened cream cheese that I kind of ish cut into cubes, and basically stirred it until the cream cheese melted.
I heated the oven to 350°, spooned the mixture over the chicken, and then covered it in foil. You don't have to do this if you're going to eat it right then, but I still had a hot minute before Scott got home, so I just kept it in the oven until then.
I timed it perfectly because I know he drives like a paw paw, so after 35 minutes I took it out, added a cup of Monterrey Jack, stuck it back in until that melted, and voila.
Ugly Double Cheesy Shrimp Mixture on Chicken.
There really is no lighting or angle to make this pretty.
