Chicken tacos

My family loves the chicken and salsa from skinnytaste. We either put it on rice or eat it as tacos and it’s so simple.

One of my husband’s favorites that I’ve tried so far is taco meatloaf. I got the recipe from here. I usually set it on some foil to keep it out of the grease. I’ve also learned recently that it bakes up very well in the oven, too, so it’s versatile!

My friend shared this with me & the family loves it - Easy Chicken parmesan

4 chicken boneless skinless breasts or 6 thighs
2 tbsp oil
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 jar spaghetti or marinara sauce
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 c crushed croutons, I like Texas toast brand

Place oil and garlic in crockpot, then chicken, Top w/ sauce - cook low 6 hours. About 1 hour before serving, top with cheeses and croutons, cover and continue on low. Serve with pasta - use the chicken sauce to top it.
**This also bakes up well in oven - assemble in 9-13 garlic/oil/chicken/1/2 jar sauce/cheese/croutons/rest of sauce. cover loosely w/ foil 350 F for 1 hour.

Cajun chicken and sausage! No “real” recipe. Just throw it in and serve with hot rice.

Celery, onions, green peppers, diced tomatoes, Tony’s seasoning, boneless chicken thighs and sausage.

I recently bought a SECOND crock pot because I utilize the crock pot every week, at least twice!

I throw a whole frozen chicken in the crockpot with a bottle of BBQ sauce and some salt, garlic and pepper. I serve pulled chicken sandwiches that night and use the leftover chicken to make Hawaiian chicken with rice and pineapple the next night. Bam!

I use my crock pot at least 3-4 times a week! I make chili, beef or chicken stew, whole chicken, meat loaf, meatballs, you name it! When I’m very pressed for time I make a very quick chicken meal with the following:
-frozen chicken
-2 cans cream of chicken soup
-2 cans cheddar cheese soup
-Only 1-2 cans water.
Let it cook all day and then before you are ready to eat cook up some egg noodles. Put your egg noodles on a plate/bowl and pour over the chicken and soup. Its very tasty! (And SO easy!)
