Chicken chili verde casserole. We are having it tonight.

2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts, boiled and shredded. I'd substitute leftover grilled or rotisserie chicken in a heartbeat, but for now, the boiled chicken was a good base. 

1/2 cup cream cheese
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 bottle of salsa verde
4 handfuls of tortilla chips (I'm super accurate with my measurements)
Salt/pepper/garlic salt/chili powder to taste
1 tbsp dried chopped onion
1/2 can of corn

Line bottom of 10" round baking dish with some slightly crunched tortilla chips until I had a good base layer. Topped with half a can of corn, sprinkled with some cheddar. Topped that with shredded chicken. Mixed the cream cheese, some of the cheddar, chili powder, garlic salt, and dried onion, and layered that on top of the chicken. Dumped the salsa verde over everything, rotating the dish so that it got all the way to the bottom. Topped it with the rest of the cheddar cheese and a light dusting of chili powder. 

Baked at 350 for 25 minutes or so, until cheese was bubbly and slightly browned

I don't know if it is the absolute easiest but it is close. We love this one. I have it set for a double recipe since we like to freeze some too. This is a recipe that my mom came up with when I was a child and it has been a staple of my diet, and now my kids, ever since!

Mom's Most Fabulous Chicken Kielbasa
2 Kielbasa
3 lbs chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
1 med. brown/yellow onion
garlic, to taste
tarragon, to taste
oil, as needed (about 4-6 oz)
2 pt, chicken stock
flour, as needed
Precook chicken. Mince garlic, onion and tarragon. Slice kielbasa and cube chicken. Put oil in bottom of pan and add garlic; brown. Add kielbasa; brown. Add onion cook about 5 min. Add chicken stock, reserving 4-5 oz, and cook for 20 minutes. Add more garlic, to taste. Add tarragon to taste (about 2-3 TBSP). Add flour to the reserved chicken stock and stir. Add to the pan. Boil until thick. Add chicken. Serve over Rice.
(THIS IS A DOUBLE RECIPE AND WILL SERVE 12 OR 1/2 CAN BE FROZEN IN A GALLON BAG FOR FUTURE USE JUST THAW, HEAT AND SERVE)

Roast in the crock pot with potatoes and homemade bread. I'm mobile and can't link but you should google the recipe for "my mothers peasant bread". It's unbelievably easy to make and tastes great. It's also easy to modify. Tonight I added garlic powder and Italian seasoning and it turned out great :)

It is one of the best things that we have ever eaten. Both my mom and I are experimenters in the kitchen and will grab a few things from fridge and cabinet and say hmm...what can I make with this. This is by far the most successful and most used recipe in our combined cookbooks.

So easy, I put either chicken or pork chops in the crockpot, cover them with a can of Cream of Chicken Soup, let it cook all day, makes a yummy gravy for potatoes or rice!
