Take This Dinner To Your Friends
I call this dinner, my “friend dinner". In that, when friends have babies, are sick, or just need a meal to get through the week, this is what I take. I am sure it has a real name, but “friend dinner” just works.
I put my chicken breasts in the crock pot still frozen.
2 small cans mushrooms and 2 pkgs ranch dips mix
Add that all together with 2 cups water and 2 chicken bullion cubes, cook on low 6 hours
Stir in cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and an 8 oz block of cream cheese. Heat through
Serve that yummy, shredded chicken sauce over whole wheat rotini pasta (or any grain of your choice) and enjoy. So so easy!
I like to take this to my friends piping hot with a side of steamed broccoli and a can of mixed fruit. It is a gentle dinner for nursing mothers, a family with a bad cold, or a stressed out mom who just needs a comfort food meal.
4 chicken breasts, frozen
2 cups water
2 chicken bullion cubes
2 small cans mushrooms, drained
2 pkgs ranch dip mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz softened cream cheese.
Pasta or grain of your choice.
1. Add frozen chicken, drained mushrooms, ranch mix, water, and bullion cubes to crock pot. Cook on low 6-8 hours.
2. Remove chicken from pot and shred with a fork. While you have the chicken out, whisk in the soft cream cheese and soups to the crock pot. Let it get warm and smooth while you shred the chicken.
3. Return the chicken to the crock pot and let it heat through.
4. While the chicken mixture is warming, cook your pasta, rice or quinoa how you like it. Serve the chicken mixture over the top and include a side of veggies. We like this with green beans or broccoli.
