Artichoke & Jalapeno Chicken Dinner

Whenever Tom shops at Costco he brings home a tub of this:


It’s not exactly diet food or even remotely healthy, so I generally stay away from it. 

But yesterday I was looking for something quick and easy to make for dinner and when I opened the fridge, the tub of artichoke & jalapeno dip was staring was staring back at me and I had an idea.

I sautéed some onions (you can never go wrong with sautéed onions, right?) and added some bite-size chicken tenderloins.


Then I very slowly added another ingredient that you can’t really go wrong with…


I added some dip…


…and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.

I’d gotten the rice cooker started when I first decided to experiment with the dip, because how could brown rice not go with a dinner like this?


And voila – dinner is served!


I wish I had a photo of Kat’s face when she tasted this!  I knew that she doesn’t like artichokes, but I wasn’t aware that she detests them. (And she also doesn’t like green beans, so I definitely struck out with her!) 

But I loved this and probably had more than I should have.  As far as I know, Tom liked it too, but he’s been so exhausted from both work and the bathroom remodel that he’s in zombie-land… so who knows how he felt about it.  (He did have two helpings.)

I left the empty chicken bag on the counter and turned around to see this.  Weird cat.
