Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

You’ve heard me say this before, “we eat so much chicken that I’m afraid one day we’ll wake up with feathers!”  No seriously, I cook chicken or turkey at least 3 times a week and it’s not that we tire of it, it’s just I have to find new ways to make it differently.  There are times when I am too tired to cook from scratch so I’m always looking for products that makes meal planning easier.

Betty Crocker, the maker of Hamburger and Tuna Helpers recently introduced Chicken Helpers and we loved it.  After dicing up skinless *Chicken Breasts, I followed the directions on the box to make the Sweet and Sour Chicken.  While the chicken cooked I boiled a pot of Jasmine Rice, dinner was done in less than an hour, tasted better than Chinese Takeout and there were no leftovers!August 2013 093

TIP: grab a few extra bags from the produce department to use as a shaker bag

Grocery store sales coupled with coupons from the Sunday paper and the Betty Crocker website is incentive enough for me to keep a few boxes of Chicken Helper in the pantry!

* According to a recent report (see here), it’s more sanitary NOT to wash raw chicken as it spreads more bacteria, just cook it thoroughly.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

The days are getting shorter and school started this week so I am lining up my recipes for the Fall.  Chicken is a staple in our house and this was an easy breezy “4 ingredient-less than 40 minute” recipe.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This week’s Foodie Feature is a 4 ingredient but less than 40 minute meal.  I was in 3 different grocery stores last week, Sunday at Safeway with hubby for the major shopping, then after work on Tuesday at ShopRite and again on Wednesday at Food Lion with my son who needed to get supplies for a BBQ on Friday.

In Shoprite I was looking for ingredients to make the Turkey Tacos and noticed the Veetee Thai Jasmine Rice, my men really like Jasmine Rice so I bought a pack to try.  In Food Lion the Campbell’s Skillet Sauces were on sale and even though I didn’t have my coupons I got it to use with chicken I had in the frig.

  • Campbell’s Skillet Sauce (Thai Green Curry)

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

My sons are continuing their quest to “eat me out of house and home” and the foods that I featured in the Summer Snacks post are not filling enough!  During a recent shopping trip to Shoprite I came across two items that may keep them satisfied until dinner!

OOTD 7 10 13 042

Philly’s Best Steak Co., Inc. Halal Lamb Sandwich Slices

They can make cheesesteaks, Gyro’s, Stir Fry or I can use them to make Moroccan Lamb Couscous.  These steak sandwiches are also available in Halal Beef and Chicken.

Friday Foodie 003

Perdue Sweet Italian Chicken Sausages

OOTD 7 10 13 044

They can boil, pan fry or throw these sausages on the grill to make a hoagie, a wrap or simply eat them with eggs and grits for breakfast.

Friday Foodie 005

Add a salad with black olives, goat cheese, mixed greens and cucumbers and they should be alright until dinner!

Friday Foodie 009

The search continues for more in-between-meal snacks for my mini-men – any suggestions?

Linking up with Living Better Together – hop on over and join the fun!

Have a fantabulous day!
