"I'm a new mom, and my schedule if very dependent upon our young son," relates Caroline Sperry from Shelby, Michigan. "So I like meals that can be ready in as little time as possible. This all-in-one stir-fry with a hint of sweetness from honey is a big time-saver."
Preparing the pizza sauce early in the week sure saves time later when it's used in this fast dinner. Tender chicken, roasted red peppers and marinated artichoke hearts put a flavorful spin on the red sauce that's served over pasta.
"When my godchild, Alex Van Ackeren, was young, I often gave her a children's cookbook for her birthday or other special occasions," shares Lorri Reinhardt of Big Bend, Wisconsin. "We'd plan an entire menu from the books, prepare the meal together and serve it to her family. This soup recipe was a favorite."
This satisfying slow-simmered chili features chicken, two kinds of beans and crunchy corn. "It's quick, easy and tastes great," says Lori Weber of Wentzville, Missouri. "It's a family favorite that we enjoy with corn bread," she adds.
"This is one of the best recipes I've ever used," notes Jody Roberts from her home in Hollister, California. Crushed potato chips make the crispy coating for the moist tender chicken. "Not only is it quick and easy, but I think it tastes better than fried chicken," she adds.
"I truly appreciate the speed of the pressure cooker. We use it often," says Holly Ottum. The Racine, Wisconsin cook serves these tender chicken breasts with a paprika-seasoned sauce that gets its richness from sour cream.
"My husband isn't a big fan of pasta so I came up with a dish he'd actually be happy to eat-and this is the result. He likes it enough that I prepare it weekly," says Amy Lauters of Falcon Heights, Minnesota. "The recipe makes enough for two hungry people."
