      Hi all! I am looking for ideas for super-fast, easy and HEALTHY meal

      ideas for those days when dinner absolutely needs to be on the table

      in less than 30 minutes. A lot of what I find out there are not quick

      (too much prep work) or not healthy.

      I’ll share mine and hopefully you can share yours. Thanks!

      Salsa Chicken

      5 or 6 Chicken Thighs (breast work too)

      1 pkg taco seasoning

      1 cup salsa (or to taste)

      minute brown rice (in quantities for your family)

      1 can red beans

      chicken broth (enough to cook rice in)

      cajun seasonings

      (NOTE: Zatarans Red Beans & Rice can be substituted for beans and

      rice – we keep a pack of the 60 second version on hand for super-

      hurried nights)

      Start preparing rice according to package directions, substituting

      chicken broth for water and adding cajun seasonings to water. Stir in

      drained canned beans when you add rice.

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle chicken with taco seasonings

      and arrange in sprayed casserole dish. Top with salsa and bake for 30-

      35 minutes until no longer pink.

      Serve on rice.

      Optional: a dallop of light sour cream and/or a sprinkle of 2%

      shredded cheese. I serve with corn and sometimes we wrap in a

      tortilla.
