Easy 1 Pot Chicken & Noodles : Recipe

Been awhile since I have been able to get a post up . Sometimes life and kids just get in the way . Even of the things we enjoy doing.

This recipe is perfect for those days where life gets in the way.

It’s a great dish for those days you get home from work late and want a quick but home cooked meal .

You could use egg noodles or different pasta shapes if you prefer but I think flat and wide is best . I think some peas would be a good addition as well.

Chicken & Noodles

Ingredients :

2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts ( I’m

Sure you could use thighs or something tho ) – I put mrs dash on them

1/2 onion diced

2 medium carrots diced

1 cup broth ( I used one of those concentrated knorr chicken broth things and added a cup of hot water )

1 1/2 cup milk ( I used homo because my kids drink it and I have on hand )

1 tsp thyme

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 package noodles broken in half . I don’t even know what mine are called but they look like lasagna noodle pieces . Egg noodles would work. Or fettuccine

Medium heat brown the chicken with some

Oil butter

Add the onions and carrots

When the onions are cooked , add the broth spices milk and noodles .

Cover and simmer for 10 mins

Tri Tip Steak

This is what I had for dinner the other night.  My husband smoked a tri-tip steak for dinner and it was so amazing.

I bought him a smoker for Father’s Day a few years ago and everything he makes in it turns out amazing!  I will never eat regular turkey the same way again.  Every year for Thanksgiving he smokes the turkey and I make all of the side dishes.

This tri tip steak is so amazing.  Here it is when we added the rub on it that we got at the butcher as well.

I think he smoked it on the smoker for like thirty minutes per side.. but I could be mistaken.  But it turned out in absolute perfection!

Pot Roast : Recipe

potroast

You know, I absolutely love using my crockpot for meals when my day is busy and chaotic.  It is my favorite cooking tool in my kitchen and in the summers I use it most often since I don’t use my oven.  Something about dumping everything in the crockpot and setting it and then walking away is simply gratifying.  I love having someone else, or something else, cook for me.

I stole this recipe from Pinterest.  She makes this simple pot roast that I made for the first time yesterday.  My husband has been begging me since March to make him pot roast for dinner.  I have never made it before so I was hesitant.  But I finally gave it a go and he gave this recipe a 10!  Here’s the recipe.

Easy Pot Roast

Ingredients:

3 lbs. chuck roast

5 potatoes, cut into chunks

1 onion, cut into chunks

4 carrots, cut into chunks

2 cups of beef stock

2 cups of water

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/4 tsp. real salt (I added more for more flavor)

1/4 tsp. pepper

Directions:

Cut up the potatoes, onions, and carrots in chunks.  Add roast in the bottom of the crockpot and then add the vegetables.  Add the seasonings on top of everything.  Pour the beef stock on top and make sure your roast is covered.  If the beef stock doesn’t cover up your roast, add water until it is covered.  Cover the lid and cook on high for five hours or on low for ten hours.  You’ll know when it’s done when you stick your fork in and it just slides off.

Enjoy!
