This is one of the throwdown meals in our house, when I realize my kids were hungry about fifteen minutes ago. I usually have these items on hand and it can be made in a big hurry.
Brown chicken in butter (on stove, in fry pan). I usually use 2-3 chicken breasts but it really doesn’t matter. Just use enough that will feed your whole family. (I also just use my kitchen shears and cut the chicken into bites, dropping them into the pan as I go.) When it’s cooled some, put it in a big bowl.
Add: a couple of stalks of washed celery (I think in that photo I had used 3), chopped into chunks. Dump in rinsed grapes, some raisins, and nuts (walnuts usually, pecans work, too). Mix in two generous spoonfuls of mayo, splash with lemon juice and stir to coat. That’s it! My kids (and hubby) GOBBLE this up, which is another reason it’s an oft-rotated meal at our house.
Which makes me curious. What’s your go-to meal when you’re in a pinch?Filed under To Share | Comments (18)
