I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chicken Caesar Cups

A light dinner for those hot summer nights......they're coming!  Really !

First, take your tortillas and drape them over ramekins on a cookie sheet.  Spray with cooking spray and give them a little squeeze. Bake at 425 F for 6 minuites.

They should look like this

Set the cups aside and prepare the chicken.  Cut the thighs in quarters and toss with chopped garlic, oregano, lemon juice and caesar dressing.

Set aside in the fridge to marinate 1-2 hours.

When you are ready heat a frying pan and cook the bacon. 

Remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate and cook the chicken in the same pan. (You may want to remove some of the bacon fat first....but not all of it).
Fill cups with torn romaine and chicken.  Top it off with bacon and parmesan or romano cheese.

Serve it with extra caesar dressing on the table.

Ingredients:

5   6-inch tortillas
1 lb (6) boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 tbsps lemon juice
4 chopped garlic cloves
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsps caesar dressing, plus extra for serving
5 slices chopped bacon
Romaine lettuce, roughly torn
Parmesan or romano cheese
