I put 4 frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot. Dumped a packet of Italian dressing seasoning mix, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and an 8 oz. pack of Neufchatel cheese in the crockpot. I set it on low for 7 hours. When I stopped home at lunch, I stirred everything together some and put the lid back on to let it keep cooking. When I came home from work, I used two forks to break up the chicken some and served it over egg noodles.
I think next time I might add peas to it so its a one dish meal. Well 2 dish cause of the noodles.
I only have 7 days left of my August Grocery Shopping Challenge. My last day will be August 29th since the 30th is pay day and that's the day I usually do my big bi-weekly shopping trip. Mr. Ripples is not really into "making do" with what we have so if I want to be successful with my challenge, I need to keep lots of easy, good snacks and meals prepared. If not, he'll go to the store and buy a whole bunch of junk.
Tomorrow, we'll probably have turkey burgers and hot dogs with a vegetable on the side.
Other meals that I plan on making in the next week:
- crock pot chicken and dumplings
- crock pot chicken noodle soup
- Italian sausages with sautéed onions and green peppers
- turkey burgers (again)
- Chili (home made from freezer)
- Pasta with spaghetti sauce (from freezer)
