The go to food I make when I don’t know what to cook is green chicken enchiladas. They’re so simple and so easy.
cheddar cheese grated, corn tortillas, oil for frying, onion(optional), 2-3 chicken breast shredded, family size can cream of chicken, 3-5 jalapenos depending on how spicy you like it.
Boil the chicken and then shred.
Boil jalapenos until light green and then blend in blender with cream of chicken and put in a sauce pan on low heat on stove to warm.
Heat oil until ripples then fry tortillas until soft and set on paper towels to drain.
Dice up onion.
Dip tortillas in green sauce and top with chicken, onion and cheese and continue process until the desired amount is on your plate. (you can also have them rolled but I like mine flat.)

When Darling Husband isn’t eating with me and I want something simple I make couscous! The whole meal takes maybe 10 mintues to prepare.
I start by making some couscous. (I normally do whatever one serving is.) While that is cooking I cut up some black olives, tomatoes, and chuck up some feta. When the couscous is finished, I mix all of that in plus some lemon juice, basil (fresh or dried), and some pepper. It’s delicious and super easy!

@MrsKaySea: Omg that sounds so yummy!
@Cady: How long do you leave that in the slow cooker? I love pulled pork.
My favorite easy food is crunchy ranch chicken,
I take chicken breasts, sliced lengthwise so theyre thin, and i mix up crunchy onions and breadcrumbs, then dredge the chicken through a pool of ranch dressing on a plate, then through the crumbles, then bake.

When I’m not in the mood to slave over a hot stove all night, I cook something quick and hands-off, so something like pasta bake – while the pasta is boiling, fry off some veggies and meat of your choice, then combine with the drained pasta, add some sauce (either premade pasta sauce or some diced tomato with spices), cover with cheese and stick in the oven for about 15 minutes. The combinations are endless.
Or I do fish in the oven and serve with veggies and mashed potato. The best thing about mashed potato is you can make it in advance and cover with alfoil – it keeps warm for a long time and if you need to reheat it, just throw it in the microwave with a little bit of butter and it reheats perfectly.
Hmm, what else? I love my rice cooker because you just turn it on and forget about it until it’s ready. I love making satay chicken – while the rice is cooking, fry off some chicken thighs or breasts cut into bite-size chunks in a large wok, then add some diced onion, a can of coconut milk, a splash of soy sauce, a tablespoon of peanut butter (to taste) and some crushed peanuts. Add some milk if you want it a little thinner, or to make more sauce, and then simmer gently until the rice is ready. Delicious and so easy!

When I don’t feel like cooking I do a pasta bake just like @caffeiney: or I make a calzone. I use this recipe for the dough and put pesto sauce, parmesean, chopped onion and green pepper on the inside. If I have some ham or sausage then I add that too, but a lot of the time it’s just a vegetarian calzone. I serve it with pasta sauce.
This recipe for enchiladas is really good and doesn’t take a ton of work if you use prepackaged ingredients. I made my own tortillas and used dry beans and fresh tomatoes the other day and that took a little more time, but it was SO WORTH IT.

@Omgbunnies: Well, I put it on before I go to work. So about 8-10 hours on low.

Spaghetti with meat sauce. I make homemade sauce in bulk and jar it. There’s always spaghetti in the pantry and ground beef in the freezer, so it’s an easy go-to.

Spaghetti with meat sauce has been an easy favorite of mine ever since I first learned to cook it. Darling Husband and I also have a dish that we discovered a little over a year ago that we love, and it’s super easy, so it’s our go-to: Sausage and spinach with gnocchi. It’s really satisfying, practically comfort food, and simple to cook. We’re just afraid we’ll make it too often and get tired of it!
