Smooth? Although I would like hear Rob Thomas sing it, I am definitely not smooth. More like, "chunky." I can just hear him singing, "Because you're so chunkaaaaay."
Anyway. You've noticed (or maybe not) that I rarely post a recipe. In fact, in two years, I don't know if I ever have. That's because over the last five years, I have mainly stopped cooking. Oh, I still feed the family somehow every day. It's just that for real meals, they get fed like snakes. You know, one good solid meal every so many weeks.
I'm always looking for a way to maintain this new kitchen-free lifestyle because frankly, I hate cooking. Unless it's baking, which is a whole 'nother animal, like cookies, the other white meat.
So imagine my delight when I found this site offering over 400 recipes requiring five or fewer ingredients.
Is it too early for Handel's Hallelujah Chorus?
Here's one that got such a satisfied thumbs-up from my family that they still haven't asked for food for about two weeks (My goal is to get to three weeks without them saying, "What's for dinner?"):
Creamy Chicken Italian Something that You May or May Not Choose to Pair Pesky Vegetables With
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup butter, melted
8 oz. container cream cheese with chives, softened
10 oz. can condensed golden cream of mushroom soup
0.7 oz. pkg. Italian dressing mix or 1-1/2 Tbsp. Homemade Italian Salad Dressing Mix
1/2 cup water
Cut chicken breasts into strips and place into a 3-4 quart crockpot. In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, softened cream cheese, soup, Italian dressing mix and water and stir until blended. Pour over chicken in crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir well, then serve over hot cooked pasta or rice.
You could add vegetables to this recipe to make it a one-dish meal. A package of baby carrots, or a cup of chopped onion should be placed under the chicken and cooked for the full time. Add sliced mushrooms to the crockpot in the last 2 hours. And add sliced bell peppers or zucchini during the last hour of cooking. Serves 4-6
