Chicken and stuffing…who knew something SO EASY could be SO YUMMY?
This has been a crazy busy week.
We normally limit our week night activities because we have to get up so early for work and school.
By the time we get home and get dinner on the table and the kitchen cleaned up, I am usually ready to chill for awhile.
But this week, there was a lot going on. For some reason, I don’t even remember Monday night, so needless to say, it passed in a blur.
Tuesday night was small group Bible study, and Wednesday night we met a the church to pack boxes for Samaritan’s Purse.
Through Operation Christmas Child, Samaritan’s Purse sends boxes of gifts to children in poverty to share love, and ultimately the Gospel with them.
Then last night, I met a friend to deliver some items for her upcoming craft auction to fund her next mission trip to Tanzania. (I have been working on these things all week too, so maybe that’s what I did Monday night?)Fun times, but a jam-packed week.
While we were out, we also had to stop by the grocery store, and I saw some double packs of Stove Top Stuffing displayed with some cream of chicken soup, so I grabbed the stuffing and soup on a whim.
Then, I thought it might be good to add some chicken, so I also tossed in a two-pack of canned chicken.
When I’m really on my game, I have a plan for dinner. Last night, I was SO not on my game.
On the way home I thought about what to do for supper, and I decided to go ahead and whip up something with the stuffing. So simple. I don’t even know if you would call it a recipe, but here’s what I did.
Here’s the recipe for my easy weeknight chicken and stuffing.
So easy! And my family loved it.
I did too, although I am not normally much of a stuffing eater.
Love me some cornbread dressing, but stuffing..not so much. So I don’t know if I was just really hungry, or if it was really as good as I think it was.
Either way, they liked it enough and it was easy enough that it will definitely go into the meal rotation when I am back to planning menus.
To go with the chicken and stuffing, I just opened a large can of green beans, added some ham seasoning, salt and pepper, and boiled them like crazy for about 10 minutes.
Green beans are usually better the longer you cook them, but in a pinch, a few minutes will do.
(This time I used Goya Jamon Ham flavored seasoning, usually found near the soups and boullion. You can also drain green beans and cook them in broth, or add a bit of bacon if you have time to cook them long enough to get the bacon done.)
So, there’s my Easy Week Night Chicken and Stuffing. Hope you enjoy it!
