Two Easy Chicken Dinners for two

These two dinners were made from a total of 3 boneless chicken breasts and 1 package of fresh stir fry veggies

Easy Chicken Stir-fry

This was the first of two meals that in total used only three chicken breasts (boneless and skinless). I cooked the chicken ahead to use in both meals. Cook time: 10 Min  Prep time: 5 Min  Serves: 2

1 1/2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless and cooked ahead
1/2-2/3 pkg stir fry veggies fresh. broccoli, baby carrots, onion, snow peas
1/3 c strawberry, mango, jalapeno pepper jelly (recipe link below)

1. Where I do like detente veggies I like my carrots sort of cooked so I cooked my carrots in a pan of water for 10 minutes before starting.
2. cut the chicken into bite sized chunks.
3. In a pan stir fry the veggies including the carrots in a little oil or butter until starting to soften slightly add the chicken and sauce and stir while frying until all is hot. serve as is if counting calories or serve over rice if preferred. I served it plain and my hubby had homemade bread with it.

Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles

This will serve 2-3 happily and can easily be doubled. I took 3 chicken breasts boneless and skinless and made two different meals for 2-3 people each. This is the second one. We had it last night. It was really good and could of served a family of 4 as a normal meal if served with a salad or served over biscuits. Cook time: 1 Hr 30 Min  Prep time: 10 Min  Serves: 2-3

1 1/2 boneless skinless and cooked chicken breasts
2-3 serving size of uncooked noodles, i used spaghetti
1 can(s) large cream of chicken soup
1 chicken bouillon cube
20 twists of "kickin chicken" seasoning
1 small onion diced
1/2 pkg stir fry veggies fresh (snow peas, broccoli, onion, carrots)

1. Chop chicken into large bite sized chunks. set aside in fridge. In a crock pot add onions veggies and everything but the chicken. add 1/2 cup water.
2. cook on high 1 hour. add meat and stir. Cook another 15-30 minutes and serve.
3. Is great by its self like we did but would also be good over biscuits, mash potatoes, or rice.
