If you’re in a hurry and need a fast, healthy, dirt cheap meal, here is one of our familys favorites.

Chicken Italian-o

  • 2 Lg. Boneless Skinless Chix Breasts (You can use thigh meat, leg meat, breast, whatever you have), cut into small chunks
  • 1 -2 Onions, sliced
  • 1 green Pepper, sliced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Shredded Mozarella or whatever cheese you like
  • 2 c. egg noodles (uncooked)
  • garlic salt

In a large skillet brown the chicken in 1 Tbs oil. Once the chicken is properly browned, add the onions and green pepper slices, sprinkle with 1 tsp (I don’t measure it, I just add it) and cook until tender. In the meantime boil enough water to cook your egg noodles (& cook them to whatever tenderness you prefer).

Once the noodles are nearly done, add 1 can of un-drained diced tomatoes to the chicken & veggies. Reduce the heat and simmer while you drain the noodles. Add a pat of butter and a sprinkle of garlic salt and dish out the noodles, top with the chicken & veggies.

Sprinkle the top with shredded cheese if you like and serve. This is a meal that takes about 18 minutes from start to finish. I don’t mix the chicken/veggies with the noodles because I like to use the leftovers in wraps for lunches. Usually there aren’t any leftover noodles.
