Dinners that taste good but dont' take a lot of ingredients!

I love to make dinner for my family that tastes good but doesn't take 50 ingredients! One of our favorites is one with chicken and Stove Top. If you haven't ever tried it you should.

This is what we had for dinner last night:

Ingredients are:

Chicken breasts (I never pay full price for meat!)
Stove Top (I got these on sale-you can't make stuffing for $1)
Cream of Chicken Soup (can also use cream of mushroom) (got these on sale too)

Chicken Breasts (put in casserole dish). Mix up the Stove Top (I used 3 cans).
Mix it up as if you were making it to eat normally. I put ours in the microwave and heat it for 3 minutes. I used 3 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup. You pour that over the chicken and spread it out. Top it with the Stove Top and cook for about 1 hour - 1 hour 15 minutes at 350.

Be careful that your dish isn't too full or it will bubble mine did last night and stink up the whole house! LOL ;-)

We also had some Mac N Cheese (at the kids request), Baked Beans and Baked Potatoes. It was a good filling meal with few ingredients. We had company so I tried to make it a bigger meal than I normally would. I would have left off something.

So, do you have any few ingredient meals?

I will start posting some of our family favorites that include few ingredients.

Care to join me?

OOooo, that sounds so good, and yet it's so simple! I don't think I have any stove-top left from New Years, but I'll have to look :) I love good, but simple, recipes!

Hi Miriam,

Thanks for the comment. We really enjoy the chicken. It's so easy. Hope you and Daniel are doing well.

hi angie, i like to use frozen chicken tenders. you don't have to thaw them and they cook quickly! i cook them in a little oil, just browned on each side. take them out of the pan and toss in a jar of marinated artichokes and some of the juice from the jar. i cook that down a bit and add some butter, put the chicken back in and simmer for a few more minutes. I serve it over spaghetti noodles. yum! not sure if the kids would eat the marinated artichokes...but you can change up the veggies and use an italian style salad dressing.
how are your pugs?
