I just don't have the brain power to play it by ear these days, and I don't have the financial resources to throw out a pan of wrecked food.
Recently I have discovered a super easy way to make delicious shredded chicken in the crock pot, and I feel confident that it can be used for anything. (Toss chicken breasts into crock pot. Add a little bit of salt, some pepper, and about 1/2 cup of water. Cook on low for 10 hours. Shred with forks.) I'm willing to use chunk chicken if you insist it makes a better finished product in your recipe! The shredded stuff just offsets one step of the cooking process.
I've been searching "chicken casserole" and have come up with an overwhelming pile of...stuff. Lots of it involves hash browns. Very little of it involves veggies. I'm ok with a can of cream of something soup here and there in my life. I need meals that I can eat for long periods of time, solid rib sticking foods. These days I'm often not hungry, but I know I need to eat. Casseroles can make that easier for me.
My pantry doesn't contain much in the way of asian ingredients, so maybe don't suggets Asian inspired noodle dishes? All veggies are welcome in my home and my belly. No dietary restrictions to date.
I've been making tacos and quesadillas with the chicken, but those are getting boring. So, any suggestions for things un-casserole-y and things un-tacoey would be good too.
