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.
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.
