Slice the veggies and sauté until tender using 2-3 sprays of olive oil from a mister. (Note: If you prefer, you can sauté in drizzled olive oil and/or add a tablespoon of real butter). While this is cooking, warm the chicken in a microwave or cook in another skillet. If using a skillet, add approximately 2/3 cup of water instead of oil as a healthier way to prevent scalding.
Irish Cheese-Stuffed Shamrock Ravioli
These shamrock raviolis are from Costco (available for St. Patrick's Day) and are filled with imported Irish cheese. Irish cheeses are the creamiest, richest, cheeses in the world as far as I'm concerned. Boil and serve plain or with pesto or Alfredo sauce. Delicious.
Using a colander, strain stock into a bowl, then pour back into the pot. This will ensure any tiny bones are no longer in the stock. Add potatoes, carrots, whole green beans (fresh or frozen), and one can of sweet kernel corn to the stock. Stir in either two cups hot water plus 4.66 ounces concentrated chicken stock or two cans of chicken stock. Then add one to two bay leaves, black pepper, thyme, basil, a pinch of paprika, two to three tablespoons olive oil, and at least one heaping tablespoon of dried shallots. Cook on low-medium heat until veggies are tender. Add one 7-ounce bag of fideo cortado pasta and the boneless chicken. Cook until noodles are done. Enjoy.
