@Fishter:  

Crock Pot Salsa Chicken:

1 package of 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 jar of salsa

1 can of black beans, drained

1 can of corn, drained (or use frozen corn)

 

Put it all in your crock pot on low for 8-10 hours.

Come home, shred the chicken using 2 forks to pull it apart. Mix it all together. Serve over rice!

 


Easy Chili:

Cook onion and garlic until transluscent. Add beef. Brown it.

@vorpalette:  enjoy 🙂 it’s one of my favorite quick meals!!

 

Another suggestion:

Boneless turkey breast roasts by butterball. They’re SO EASY! Just put it in the crock pot with some broth or water (directions are on the package) and leave it on all day. Come home to delicious cooked turkey breast!

 

I also like to pick up a rotisserie chicken and use that in salads, soups, chicken pot pie, with rice and veggies… options are endless really. Just make sure to remove skin!

Chicken skin isn’t bad for you, that’s a myth (spun off of the “fat / saturated fat is bad for you” myth). And the fat in chicken skin will keep you feeling full longer, making you less likely to snack.

Eat and enjoy your chicken skin guilt-free! It’s actually healthier to eat chicken skin than whole wheat bread / pasta.

My favorite brainlessly easy recipe is stir fry.

Brown 1 lb ground beef in a big pan/skillet and drain. I usually season it with some black pepper and garlic powder (a couple teaspoons, maybe? Can you tell I don’t follow recipes?). Once that’s all done, dump in a package of frozen stir-fry vegetables and stir-fry for 7-10 minutes (until the veggies are tender). Serve with brown rice and soy sauce (I use low-sodium and apply just enough to flavor it).

@abbyful:  OK well only if you, like me, are on Weight Watchers and do not want to spend the large number of points required for chicken skin.

While I can’t offer any advice since Darling Husband does the cooking, I love this thread!
