Chicken Enchiladas

I love making these!  They are pretty easy and quite tasty!

16 oz sour cream
2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
1 small can of diced green chilies 
2 cups of grated cheese (1 cup used to sprinkle on top)
8-10 cooked chicken tenderloins or rotisserie chicken from the grocery store
1 small can of sliced olives (if you prefer)
Tortillas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook chicken (I usually boil the chicken or buy the already cooked rotisserie chicken from the store). Mix sour cream, Cream of Chicken soup, diced green chilies and 1 cup of grated cheese together.  Split the mixture into two bowls.  In one bowl, shred the cooked chicken and mix in with the mixture.  Scoop some of the mixture (with the chicken) into each tortilla and roll like a burrito and place in a 9 x13 glass pan.  Once all enchiladas are made, spread the mixture that was in the 2nd bowl over the tortillas.  Make sure to get all the corners and creases!  Sprinkle the cup of grated cheese over the top and olives if you would like.  Cook for 35 minutes.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

3-4 Chicken Breasts
1 Egg Beaten
Corn Starch or Flour ( I use flour because that's what I have around the house)

*Thaw chicken and cut into chunks. Beat Egg in bowl.  Put Flour on a plate or in a separate bowl.   Dip Chicken in egg and then roll into flour.  Place into pan and cook until brown on medium heat.  Once chicken is cooked place in dish and pour sauce over top.  

Sauce
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Vinegar
4 Tablespoons Ketchup

*Heat all sauce ingredients together over medium heat until sugar dissolves. 

We usually put some white rice in our rice cooker and put the sweet and sour chicken over that.  It's super easy and yummy!  Enjoy!!

Rump Roast and Potatoes

This is a crock pot meal...but NOT to be fooled its not easy. It took me a good hour to prepare it so this may be a Saturday meal for everybody.  Also...wear protective gear! Like maybe an oven mitt, I could have avoided some nasty oil burns. Ok here goes.

You Need:

Baby Red potatoes
Baby Carrots
Onion
Roast
Oil (canola if you want)
Salt
Garlic Salt
Pepper
Beef Broth (1 Can)
1 packet Lipton Onion seasoning
last ingredient....diligence.

First you rub your roast :) with lots of garlic salt, salt and pepper.  Coat it nicely.  Then in a large pan into which you have been slowly heating up oil you place your roast to brown it.  Brown each side and try to get the sides not just top and bottom...I was only minorly successful at this so don't feel overwhelmed.  After you have browned your roast place it in a greased (with spray pam or something) crock pot.  While your roast has been browning multi-task by cutting up your potatoes and carrots to add to your crock pot.  Now once you have placed your roast in the crock add your potatoes and carrots and one can of beef broth.  Before I added all the stuff to the pot I did salt again the roast (spencer told me to).  Now turn this on HIGH.  While that gets started in a little skillet brown some onions to throw over the top.  Add them to the mix when they're done and let this bad boy cook for like 5 hours probably...maybe 4. Thats that! Good luck. I hope mine turns out ok.  Call me Pioneer Woman Jr. if you want here are some PICTURES!

Hawaiian Haystacks

Need something ridiculously easy?

You Need:
1 Can Cream of Chicken
3/4 Can Chicken Broth

Mix that business together in a sauce pan and you've got your gravy. Now! We like to add our already cooked frozen chicken that I sizzle up on a skillet, then choose from these additional sides...tomatoes, pineapple slices, olives, celery, cheese, chow mein noodles. DONE! Put it all over rice. Really if nobody knows how to make this I may be appalled. Just thought I would give everybody an idea.
