Protein Packed, Quick and Easy Chicken Dinner (5 Ingredients!!)

So I came home today after work and the kids were STARVING!  Teenagers…!!! Leftovers and frozen pizza were not satisfactory so I pulled out one of my quick and easy meals.  I keep these ingredients on hand for such “emergencies.”

First, I used the thin cut chicken cutlets.  These cook quick and easy to thaw out in a pinch as well.  These packs usually come with 4 thin,  trimmed chicken breast slices.

Heat up Olive Oil (a few Tablespoons) in a skillet on medium high and add salted (don’t be afraid of the salt either) and peppered chicken breasts.  Lower temp to medium and cook through (takes just a few minutes).

When chicken is cooked through, remove chicken and chop into bite sized pieces.  Add about 1/4 C White Cooking Wine and then 1/2 C Chicken Broth to the skillet.

Take a whisk and scrape up all those drippings (“goodies”) off the bottom of the pan left from the chicken.  Let it come to a bubble and simmer a few minutes.  You’ll now have a delicious sauce..pan sauce! Believe me, it tastes delicious!

While cooking the chicken, place a bag of Birds Eye Protein Blend Steamers in the microwave and cook.  These are great!  High in protein and will definitely fill you up! Super cheap too.  I bought several bags a few weeks ago when Kroger was selling them 10 for 10! They have several different flavors.ABP_8051Asprinkleofgrace

All that’s left to do is combine the Steamer bag, chopped chicken and pan sauce and LUNCH IS SERVED!  Total time to cook: 15 minutes!

I haven’t tried this but I would imagine these would make good filling for soft tacos.  I know it’s great with tortilla chips!

Ingredients: This fed 3 of us!  If you have a big family, I would suggest 2 bags of the Birdseye.

  • Chicken Breasts
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper ( I don’t count this as an ingredient..everything needs salt and pepper, right?)
  • White Cooking Wine
  • Chicken Broth
  • Birdseye Protein Blend Steamer Bag
