Here are a few E-Z recipes you might want to try. Good Luck & enjoy.
(And more variations of recipe)
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup catsup
1 12oz. can cola (pepsi, coke, etc.)
Put chicken in a non-stick pan.
Mix together catsup and cola, pour over chicken.
Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook 45 minutes.
(turning chicken a few times, while cooking...to prevent from sticking to pan)
Uncover, turn up the heat and continue to cook until the sauce
becomes thick and adheres to the chicken.
It turns into the most incredible BBQ sauce. Yummmm!
You can double the recipe and use more pieces of
chicken....wings...would be ideal...add some hot sauce....presto "Hot Wings"!
I have used Ribs, just as good.
I tried this recipe with 'meatballs'....was equally
as good...served over rice.
I found another variation.....omit the catsup and add a small jar of Salsa (any variety).
I have tried using Salsa (omitting the catsup....not).
You'd think a recipe with only '3' ingredients couldn't be messed up....wouldn't you??
Well...while I was preparing to fix the 'Cola Chicken' recipe
using Salsa.....I was also trying to carry on a conversation with my
husband...(just proves...I can't do two things at once)....mixed Salsa & Catsup (before I realized I was supposed to leave out the catsup) & Cola........still turned out really tasty (to me)...might be a little sweeter than some of you like.
I fixed chicken wings, (using the above recipe)
but...I added the spices from a MILD (I don't care for "HOT") Buffalo Wings packet...(the kind you get to bake in the oven).....I thought it was really good.....(but you/I can't find a 'bad' way to fix chicken).
Finally....!! I fixed the 'SALSA' chicken......that's good , too.
Another (bright)idea.....I thought of trying......replace the
catsup with a bottle of Shrimp Cocktail Sauce...and add a bag of (pop corn) shrimp.....!
Fixed the shrimp with cocktail sauce......eh...wasn't all that
great...was OK...probably won't be fixing it again.
Also tried beef stew cuts......that was pretty good.....I can see
myself making this again.
Served both over rice.....think the stew cuts would have been just as
good over noodles.
Try little cocktail wieners/sausages…for appetizers.
4 boneless/skinless chicken breast (or any pieces you like)
1 can cream of mushroom soup.
1 can water
Place chicken in crock pot (or sauce pan for stove top cooking)
mix soup & 1 can of water together
pour over chicken
cook on medium heat until boiling then reduce heat and cook until chicken is really tender & falling apart.
Serve over noodles or rice or dressing....or???
Whatever cans of veggies I have, that I like, in cabinet it goes in the pot.....along with all the juices in the cans.
Cook on stove top or Crock pot.
gr.beans (any variety)
tomato (any variety)
potatoes (whole or sliced...or both whatever you like)
You get the idea....lol.
Also add a package of shredded cabbage (cole slaw mix).
You can even add a package of onion soup mix.
If it gets to dry and needs more liquids....add tomato juice...V-8...etc.
(I’ve not made this one yet)

"Corny Beanie Weenies."
(from a country preacher in Mississippi…wife & 2 teenage sons)
Mix one can of good baked beans
We use a good sized can of beans (14-16 ounces, I think) and
get a kind that we like (maybe with brown sugar, onion, and bacon).
There are several kinds of good baked beans.
and a package of Oscar Meier Weiners (all sliced up).
with a can of whole kernel corn (drained)
Any way, heat up these three ingredients, and serve with brown bread
(maybe toasted ?) and a glass of milk.
It doesn't get any easier than this, and is suprisingly good!
P.S…..Might put ingredients in a casserole dish and top with corn muffin mix.
Substitute a pound of cooked ground beef……rename to…??
Your choice of beef (to fit crock-pot)
1 pkg. dry Ranch dressing mix
1 pkg. dry Italian dressing mix
1 pkg. dry Brown Gravy mix
1 cup water
Put beef in pot.
Mix together all the dry mixes….then add water …pour over meat and cover & cook on high 4-6 hours.
Until meat is tender.
The first time I mad it I didn’t have the Italian Dressing mix….so I added a pkg. of Onion Soup Mix….I have to say I liked that better.
If you use more water you might want to add more Brown Gravy mix….to make a thicker sauce. Was gonna add
potatoes and carrots…but never got around to it.
