I wanted something quick for the family throughout the week that would be GOOD too! Hoping to add to this as time goes on so that others can find things like this too. They have to be rated between 4 and 5 stars and be able to put them on the table in 45 minutes or less to be included here.
A delicious one dish meal that is full of flavor and will be cooked in less than 1 hour. The only prep time is for 2 cups of water to boil; and make sure the chicken is thawed if previously frozen. I got this recipe from my Brand Named Best Loved Casseroles book, in the "Dinner in Minutes" chapter.
The spread on these meatball sandwiches is what really sets them apart from others. You can experiment and customize by using your favorite meatballs, sauces and fresh bread. Good for a party finger food, or for lunch or dinner. I promise no meatball sandwich will be the same again! Cook time includes entire process.
I have always loved Olive Garden's Pomodoro. This is what I came up with when I experimented at home. This does not heat up your kitchen and is a light supper dish for those hot summer evenings. If you like spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes to taste. Just don't use anything but the freshest ingredients--you'll end up with something that tastes pasty/chemical/bitter/etc.
I save chicken parts in a plastic zip-loc bag in the freezer and when I have enough, I make this stock. This is a really easy, fast way to make good homemade chicken stock. I freeze the stock in a variety of amounts; ice cube sized, one cup and 2 quarts.
Don't let the sparse ingredient list fool you. This is a recipe that's so easy to make yet so delicious that everyone inhales it. My mother was raised on this soup and she served it often to us. My grown daughters now demand it when they are home. To this day, entering the house on a cold day and smelling this soup is the most comforting, delicious aroma imaginable. It's also non-fat if you use skim milk. (But I like half-and-half, myself!)
This is the easiest recipe imaginable. It may be one of the reasons that Velveeta was invented. It's also low carb and delicious. What else do you need? I've never seen this serve more than four people, two in my household.
These are really tasty and I love that they are baked in the oven rather than pan-fried. I found this recipe in Cooking light originally and have made them several times with great success. They freeze well after cooking - I just thaw them and add them to simmering sauce for a great spaghetti dinner on busy nights.
From Australian Women's Weekly. Serve this with cheese and bacon toasts. Yummy! Soup can be made a few days ahead and frozen. Reheat in microwave. To make the soup even yummier, I would suggest that you fry 1 slice of bacon and chop it up. Then using the reserved bacon grease, saute the onions, garlic and chopped bacon as stated.
My daughter's pre-K class made a recipie book for mother's day. This was submitted by one of her classmates Great-Aunts. I added the can of chicken to give it some protein for a main dish. Yummy, easy, and fast!!
I was in a hurry, and wanted something that that tasted home-made. I didn't want to spend a lot of time cooking, so I came up with this. Standing time is included in cook time. I know that this isn't real Cajun, but it's good.
