What is your favorite, fast and easy recipe?
I have a lot of favorite and fast recipes.
With 3 kids and all their activities, I need super fast and super simple but also healthy.
To save time, I take one day a month and cook up a ton of chicken, ground beef (for tacos, stroganoff, etc), beef chunks (like for stews and such), then I freeze them. So all I have to do is assemble and reheat.
My family enjoys this one:
1 box mac and cheese
2 cups broccoli florets
1 can diced tomatoes (either with green chilies if we want spice or the italian flavor)
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken (reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Make the mac and cheese according to package directions. Add broccoli in the last 2 minutes of the noodles boiling. Drain and combine the cheese package. Add the broccoli, tomatoes and chicken to the pot. Stir together. Top with the cheddar. Serve.
Start to finish, this takes me about 15 minutes and serves 5 (2 adults and 3 children)
