This post should really be titled “The Basic Meal I Make Every Single Week Because It’s The Only Thing My Kids All Like”.
This is that meal that I make when I don’t want to think, I don’t want to work, I don’t want to clean up a big mess and I don’t want anyone to complain about what we’re having for dinner. It’s not fancy food, but it’s really flavorful and something all my kids will eat. It’s also all made in one pot so I’m not stuck cleaning a bunch of dishes after.
I could make this in my sleep, so it wasn’t until recently it occurred to me I should share it as a “real” recipe here on the blog. But sometimes these staples are the best things to share — easy, fast, kid-friendly and not much clean-up. It also makes great leftovers for lunch the next day!
I always have the butcher chop up the chicken breasts for me, so all I have to do is throw them in the pan.
p.s. Boneless chicken thigh pieces are great in this too. But my hubby hates them, so we stick with the breast.
