My friend had this REALLY GREAT idea! Why not have the “super chefs” make food that is on a family budget that a real family would eat? What fun it would be to see what they could create out of a can of spinach, a pound of hamburger, and a box of mashed potatoes, right?
Well, I am going to run with that idea! I am looking for people who would like to help get this off the ground! We would post ideas of how to make a “family-friendly” meal out of what you have in the pantry!!! It looks like it’ll be lots of fun!
I will get us started: here is a recipe that I used before, but had only things that I had on hand…
Creamy Chicken and Noodles
First, the ingredients.
3-4 Chicken Breats (I actually used thighs)
1 box noodles (I used Penne…would work well with elbow or bowtie, too)
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c milk
1 1/2 c shredded cheese
At the same time, brown the chicken thighs.
Then, take them out, dice into pieces, and place back into pan. Add cream cheese, milk, and 1/2 the shredded cheese. Stir until all melted together. Drain the noodles, and add to pan and stir until all the noodles are coated with the sauce.
Place in greased 9×13 pan and sprinkle the rest of the cheese over. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
We served this with broccoli. It was a hit at our house!
