When You Really Don't Want To Cook, But Do..
I have had a bug going on 4-5 days, and food isn't high on my burning desire list. Still, it's my job in this house, and my wife deserves a square meal, after working long hours. She had to work Saturday, and the larder was getting lower..
I had some chicken tenderloins, and decided to make a chopped chicken in sauce, over egg noodles. It has been getting nippy over here, and comfort food starts to come back into fashion! A simple dish, I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper,Lawry's Poultry Seasoning, and baked it for 15 minutes at 350F until not quite done. I then cut it into chunks, and added it to the sauce I had prepared. The sauce is easy- a can of cream of chicken soup, equal volume of chicken broth, some Lawry's Poultry Chicken Seasoning, with a bit of corn starch for a thickening agent. Boiled egg noodles while sauce was simmering, and meal was done..
Hardly inspired, but I can always make an edible meal that disappears..
When my kids were growing up, we always called this noodles and goop- and they loved it!
