Hey all! Hope your day is great! Thought it would be fun to share some good recipe's! I'm not much of a cook, I do the best I can for my family every night but I'm running low on ideas. Would anyone like to share any tips, recipes, YouTube video or recipe online they tried and loved? :) sick of the same dinners! We all know we love food, c'mon embrace it! Share it! Eat it! Missionaries are excited when I get baptized because apparently members of the church all being food. So spit 'em out! :) hehehe!

If you don't mind, just how much can you handle in the kitchen? How I explain a recipe to someone who knows there way around hamburger helper and grilled cheese but not much else is different from how I would explain a recipe to how someone who knows more about cooking food. Also, what kind of foods does your family like, or won't eat at all? If you hate lentils with a passion then sharing a lentil soup recipe I use won't do you much good. :)
Hindsight is all well and good... until you trip.

Here's a very easy one in the same level as hamburger helper that you can get done in 30 minutes flat (if the chicken is already thawed):

Go to the grocery store and buy these:
1.) 1 small package of Basmati Rice
2.) 1-pound boneless chicken breasts or thighs
3.) 2 tablespoons olive oil
4.) 1 Patak's Simmer Sauce (in the International Aisle). It looks like this:

This flavor - Butter Chicken - is my kids' favorite. They can eat a boatload of this.
Notice in the top of the jar label it says Mild. There are other flavors like Tikka Masala flavor that is spicier, just check the Mild-Hot rating on the jar to your taste. Make sure you get the ones that say Simmer Sauce on the jar. There are other Patak products that are in a jar like this that are not Simmer Sauces.
5.) 12-oz package of Brocolli florets
6.) 1 tablespoon minced roasted garlic (they sell these in little jars in the produce section)
7.) 1 tablespoon lemon juice
8.) 1 or 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Okay, this is how you can make this in 30 minutes:
1.) Cook the Basmati Rice by putting 1 cup Rice to 1.5 cups water in a rice cooker then you can leave it alone until it is done. We Filipinos eat a lot of rice, so my family of 4 can eat 2 cups of Rice for one meal. If you don't have a rice cooker, that's okay, it's not too much trouble to do it on the stovetop. Put the rice and water in a pot with cover and put on the stove on medium-high. When the water boils, take off the lid and let the water boil until you don't see water on top of the rice anymore. Then turn down the stove to medium-low, put the lid back on. You'll know when it's done by taking a small bite of the rice to see if the kernels is soft throughout. Usually, by the time the chicken is done, the rice is done too.

2.) While the rice is cooking, chop up the chicken into 1-inch cubes. Then heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and add the chicken. Set the stove to medium-high. Stir-fry the chicken until cooked through. Add the entire jar of Patak's sauce to the chicken and mix. Set the stove to medium and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.

3.) When there's 4 minutes left in the chicken's simmering, put the brocolli in a microwaveable bowl with a lid. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of minced roasted garlic. Put the lid on and shake the bowl to mix. Microwave for 2 minutes. Shake the bowl again to mix. Microwave for 1 more minute. Check the brocolli for desired tenderness. Microwave for 1 more minute if desired. Take off lid and add 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Put on the lid and shake for 5 seconds to mix. If desired, sprinkle 1 extra tablespoon of parmesan cheese as topping.

To serve: Spoon rice onto a dinner plate. Put the chicken on top and spoon chicken sauce over the chicken and rice. Spoon broccoli on the side. It looks good and tastes good and the kids absolutely love it.

And there's your 30-minute meal.

And here's my tip for getting kids to eat veggies. Put something they love on it. My kids love parmesan cheese. They can eat parmesan cheese sticks like it's candy. So, I use parmesan cheese on brocolli and so they'll at least try it. They realize the brocolli tastes okay and the parmesan cheese is still smashing, so they eat the whole lot.
