Chili Chicken

I got this recipe from here.
  • 2 pounds boneless chicken, cubed
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 2 medium onions
  • 4+ Tbsp red chili powder
  • 2+ Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 8oz. can tomato sauce
  • Oil
  • Garlic powder
Marinate chicken with chili powder and soy sauce for 1 hour. Dice bell pepper and onion into big chunks, sautee in a bit of oil. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp garlic powder over chicken, then sautee in a bit of oil. Add bell pepper and onion mixture to chicken, add tomato sauce, sautee until sauce is a thick and all chicken is well coated.

Warning: Super duper spicy.

Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies turn out gigantic and fat and soft. They're less sweet than you'd think a chocolate chip cookie should be, but tastes great with ice cream. If you want them without the ice cream, I would say increase sugar to 1/2 or 1 cup instead.

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 bag chocolate chips
I mixed everything together in one bowl. Preheat oven to 375. Round into 1 inch sized balls and bake for 16 minutes. Original recipe used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter sticks.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Strawberry Cookies

Yummers. These turned out super soft, perhaps I should have used butter instead of the vegetable oil sticks to make the cookies hold a bit stronger (like the original recipe said to do), but they turned out good anyways.
  • 1 cup 70% vegetable oil sticks (2 sticks)
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 heaping tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, cut in quarters
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Mix wet ingredients. Mix dry ingredients, but save chocolate chips and strawberries for later. Combine the two mixes. Carefully fold in chocolate chips and strawberries so you don't break/crush the berries. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes.
