Another quick meal ...

What's up with all these Meal posts lately? Well we're broke and need to eat off what we have in the house; we feed anywhere from 3-5 people a night, so here we go for tonight's quick and easy meal.

Chicken Burritos

In ONE large covered pan:

  • 3 flash frozen chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • water
  • garlic diced
  • salt, pepper, other herbs/spices as desired

Let them simmer for awhile, no need to defrost ahead, this will do it for you.

Once meat is defrosted I cut it up into chunks right in the pan.

Add to it:

  • 2 cups water (or chicken stock)
  • Rice (I tossed in a mixed brown rice)
  • frozen corn
  • can of black beans (juice included)
  • parsley
Let cook until the rice is soft, depending on your stove and the setting you use, you may need to add more water or chicken stock.

Heat up tortillas in the microwave, add filling, shredded cheese, whatever additional condiments you desire and serve on a dish.

After this meal you have only ONE pan to clean. That's EASY and healthy!!
