Sloppy Chicken

The real recipe is called Elegant and Easy chicken. But my family likes to call it sloppy chicken. I found this recipe a long time ago and I really don't remember where I found it. But it quickly became one of my daughter's favorite. I am sure I have made alterations to the original recipe, but here is my version.

Chicken (1 whole, cut into pieces or 6 small boneless, skinless chicken breast)
1 can sloppy Joe sauce
1 can mushrooms
1 medium onion
1 sloppy Joe sauce can of water
2 tbs. oil (your choice)

Brown chicken in skillet using 2 tbs oil. Remove chicken from pan and pour off oil. Place chicken back in pan, add onions and allow to wilt. Pour sloppy Joe sauce and 1 can of water on top. Top with mushrooms and simmer until chicken is done. Time will vary if you use bone-in chicken vs. boneless, skinless.

I usually serve with rice pilaf, and a green vegetable.

Even though it has sloppy Joe sauce, it only taste a little like sloppy Joe's.

Crock Pot Roast Beast

We have always been big fans of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". I always like to think that the Grinch found the true meaning of Christmas. Christ changed his heart as He does for all who accept Him. So in honor of the movie we have always called it roast beast in our house. This recipe is not healthy or low fat. It's just a very good, easy roast beef.

For this recipe you need to buy the cheapest beef roast that you can find, which these days isn't very cheap.
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 packet Au Jus seasoning
Garlic Pepper
Onions (I use dried onions)
1 can beef broth

Season your roast with salt & garlic pepper. Place in crock pot. Place remaining ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Add 2 soup cans of water and mix well. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Server with mashed potatoes, rice or noodles. You want believe how good this smells when you walk in the house after a long day, nor how good it taste.
