Hi There, Moms! I am going on a journey of cooking healthier (to an extent) and as part of this journey, I would like to for my family to eat more fish, chicken and turkey (instead of pork and beef all the time). I have a few recipes for these items, but not many.....do you have any interesting yummy recipes for fish, chicken or turkey that you are interested in sharing with me? I'd love to try them!
A lot of times I just crock pot a whole chicken and then serve pieces of it for dinner with rice and veggies.
Then, with the leftover chicken and rice, I make chicken casserole. I cut up about 4cups of chicken. I make a white sauce:
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
3 tsp. salt
A sprinkling of pepper
3 cups milk
2 cups chicken broth.
Melt butter. Mix in flour, salt & pepper until smooth. Add broth and milk and mix over medium heat until it boils. Boil for about 1 minute. Take off heat.
Add chicken to sauce and about 2 cups rice.
Bake in a 9x13 pan at 350° for 30-40 minutes.
You can add cheese before serving, if you like.
This feeds our family of 6 and leaves leftovers. It's great with tortilla chips or broccoli.
you can always do home made chicken nuggets SO much better than store bought....as for fish...I do not even know how to cook fish as I do not eat it LOL...you can always google ideas for these items too...allrecipes is a GREAT site...and there is a recipe thread stickied to the top I am sure it has quite a few yummy recipes in there for these items!!
Something really quick I do pretty often and you can eat it multiple ways is take chicken breast and a bottle of bbq sauce and throw chicken into pan and cover with bbq sauce and bake until done. You can then eat as is or shred into bbq sandwiches, shred and make bbq chicken tacos or burritos.
