Chopped

T.J. and I really like a few cooking shows on the Food Network, one of which is called Chopped. We are amazed how competitors can create beautiful and innovative meals using the strangest ingredients. We like to pretend we are the chefs who have to come up with our own recipe, but usually we just end up getting a bowl of cereal instead.

Well, tonight we didn’t have to pretend any longer! I wanted to make a healthy dinner using the ingredients we had on hand. So, I found a recipe in one of my cookbooks but, because we didn’t have all of the ingredients, I decided to take a risk and try to substitute and modify. The end result was delicious and SO easy. Make it tomorrow night for your family (makes 3-4 servings)!

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup frozen, chopped, precooked chicken (This is how I buy my chicken now because I’m paranoid my chicken won’t cook all the way. But you can can use chicken breasts and cook them it a little longer)
  • 1 cup frozen stir-fry veggie mix
  • 1 cup egg noodles
  • 14 oz (1 can) of chicken broth
  • 1 package of dry onion soup
  • 1/4 cup water
In large skillet, heat oil on medium high. Add remaining ingredients and stir occasionally until boiling. Then cover for 8-10 minutes until thickened. If mixture is still runny, add a tablespoon of cornstarch (first mix with a tsp of water). Eat up!
