So I am kind of at a loss as to what I want to make for dinner. We did soup last night and pasta the night before. I already have some cooked turkey thawed. I *think* I have some ground meat. I have chicken breasts and tilapia filets. I'm not anywhere near hungry, at the moment, so nothing sounds good. Just throw some ideas at me and hopefully something will jump out at me.

Thanks in advance!

Oh thank you thank you! This sounds delish, as my 4 year old would say. Where would she even hear that?? I don't say that and we have not been around anyone that I know of or seen anyone on TV who says it! LOL

Santa Fe Chicken & Rice

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced thin
  • 8 oz. salsa
  • 1 8 oz. can corn, drained (I used frozen)
  • 1 15 oz. can black beans, drained
  • 1/2 c. shredded taco or monterey pepper jack cheese, grated
  • 2 c. cooked rice

Spray skillet with cooking spray and heat. Add chicken, cook on medium heat until no longer pink. Stir in salsa, corn and beans and heat through . Sprinkle with cheese. You can also choose to add the rice before sprinkling with cheese. Remove from heat and letset until cheese melts a bit. Serve over the rice if you didn't mix it in.

I'm odd, I know, I LOVE pineapple but do not like it on my chicken, pizza, or ham.*shrugs*

serve over rice


Hawaiian Chicken

Set oven to 350°F. Place chicken in baking dish. Melt butter in large skillet on low heat. Mix corn starch and hot water in glass or small bowl until well blended; set aside. Add excess pineapple juice from can of pineapple chunks.

Sprinkle pineapple chunks over chicken.


Mix brown sugar, salt, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, and chili powder in skillet until well blended.
Turn skillet to medium heat and let simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in ketchup and soy sauce. Stir in corn starch mixture and blend well, sauce will become very thick. Let simmer 2-3 more minutes. Pour sauce over chicken and pineapple chunks.

Bake chicken for 50-60 minutes, or until chicken is cooked completely through.

I guess I could have done that. I didn't even think of it. Well, shoot, I don't know that I even have time now.
