If You’re Brave, Stew Some Chicken on Friday

I’m always stewing chicken.  My husband is Trini, so it’s kind of requirement to being married to him.  What I love about stewing chicken is that if you pair it with some rice and veggies it can last for about 4 days.  All you need is a big pot, 2 large packs of chicken thighs, your favorite seasons and some rice.  Once your chicken is seasoned, it only takes about 1 hour to make dinner until Tuesday.  Check out the two chefs over at CookLikeAJamaican.com to see how the pros do it.

Chicken Salad has to be one of the easiest meals for the weekend.  All you need is a bag of salad, frozen chicken strips and salad dressing.  But, if you’re in the mood for something with a little more flavor, check out how this blogger adds some variety to her chicken salad at fromJessicasKitchen.com.
