Well, one of my favorite quickie meals is this. Asian Chopped Chicken Salad. In the time it takes to go through a drive-thru, you could run into the grocery store and pick up what you need for this. It's not even a recipe, but it's yummy and fast, and I thought I would share. Because sometimes, you just need a quickie.
All you need is -
1 rotisserie chicken (or leftover chicken)
1 bag of Asian Chopped Salad (I buy mine at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club)
The bagged salad comes with everything you need for a delicious Asian salad - it has the cabbage, cilantro, toppings, dressing, etc. and add some rotisserie or leftover chicken to make it a meal. It's healthy, fast, and easy. And if your kids are like mine and won't eat this, give them some rotisserie chicken, plain bagged salad/carrot sticks/etc., and mac n' cheese! (Yes, this was dinner the other night!)
This salad is also good with some pineapple tidbits or mandarin oranges on top!
If you have a little more time on your hands, there is this Copycat Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad -
It requires a little more prep work, but not too much!
What are your favorite 'quickie' meals? I'm always looking for something fast and easy to get on the table now that extra-curricular activities are in full swing.
