Preschool and Ballet classes are back in session and I’m on the hunt for quick dinners. If it was up to hubby we’d be eating out every night but I am on a mission to keep take out to a minimum this year. I need something quick and nutritious to prepare for dinner, and when I come home late I am in no mood to make a 4 course meal. I checked out the freezer and found a bag of Tyson’s Grilled Chicken Strips and I instantly new I could work with these. I started by sauteing the strips and added 3 local red peppers that I had in the fridge. Let everything saute till the chicken is soft and the peppers still have a crunch (about 7 mins)
Meanwhile, I was rummaging through the cupboards looking for a side. My family lives on Whole Wheat pasta and there was no way I was eating it another night. I did however find 2 packages of Uncle Ben’s 90 second Brown Rice. I heated both packages and added it directly to the chicken/pepper mixture.
To add flavor and bind everything together, I added Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Basil and Crushed Tomatoes (just enough to coat everything).
To my surprise, the WHOLE family loved it and I had no leftovers. Dinner was made in 15 minutes and we all had happy bellies : ) Hope you’re all enjoying your back to school ventures and not spending dinnertime in the drive through!
