This homemade version of the Americanized Chinese food classic is fool-proof enough for a harried weeknight and delicious enough to make you happy you’re making the effort of cooking. Kids and adults wolf down the tender chicken, bite-sized chunks of bell pepper, cashews, and delicious sauce.
Guy has made these chicken roulades, stuffed with chorizo, Manchego cheese, parsley, and almonds, for our yearly Wild Game Dinners as well as Winner Dinner, a yearly fantasy football bet I routinely lost to our friend Jarred.
They are moist and delicious, and worthy of a special occasion.
My Grandmother turned 80 on New Year’s Eve, 1999. In the midst of Y2K paranoia, we all descended on Childersburg, Alabama to celebrate. Some of the family asked those of us from Texas to do a TexMex dinner. We served these enchiladas, along with Dad’s Rotel Rice and Jeff’s Salsa.
