As you probably notice I have become momentarily obsessed with my crock pot. I don't have a lot of time to stand in the kitchen.
Plus, it's hot. Hot, hot, hot. The weather lady said to run the AC full blast today. But since I'm frugal, it's on 79. (We had a $330 electric bill! Can you believe that???)Read More
School starts soon, which means another busy year is off to a start. I don't have school-aged children but I know many of you do.
So I thought I would post a few simple, quick, healthy and of course cheap (love cheap!!!) recipes.
Here is the world's easiest chicken stir-fry.
Note: When I buy a large pack of boneless skinless chicken breasts (on sale. I never buy it when it's not on sale) I break up the pack and put it in sandwich bags. I will think ahead of what I am going to make and add in marinades.This saves a TON of time.
What you'll need:
2 chicken breasts, cubed
1 cup Teriyaki marinade
1 bag teriyaki vegetables (I prefer the Eat Smart- not the frozen kind. The frozen kind get mushy)
1 can pineapple chunks in pineapple juice
2 cups cooked rice
Warm up a skillet over medium heat. (I used the electric skillet.)
Place chicken in skillet with marinade. Make sure chicken is fully coated and allow to brown.
Add in garlic and pineapple.
Stir in your vegetables and cook for about 8 minutes. You want crisp veggies not limp brocoli.
Add in cooked rice and stir.
