We have sports fans in the house. My husband and my son don't miss a Montreal Canadiens game. They love to watch any sport on TV, but hockey is their favorite. They both played and they share the same passion for the sport. If we are going away for the night, my husband will make sure he records the game before we go, that's how passionate he is about it. We're so excited that the Habs won last night!
On game nights, Chicken Nachos are a great recipe to make for sports fans. For my recipe I am using Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts. I like the fact that these chicken breasts are already thinly sliced because they cook faster. To make the chicken I marinate it in lime juice, garlic, chili powder, oregano and cilantro for a couple hours, the longer the better. You can prepare the chicken in the morning before going to work, and let it marinate all day.
The chicken can be cooked on the BBQ, the oven or in a pan. In the summer nothing beats the BBQ flavour. Once the chicken is fully cooked you can prepare the nachos. I like to serve these nachos with a sour cream Creama, and lots of fresh vegetables like tomatoes, green onions, green pepper and jalapeños. A plate of these Chicken Nachos doesn't last long in my house!
Are there any sports fans in your house? If so, what sports do they watch?
