My recipe book: Chicken in parmesan sauce

May 11, 2018

I have no confidence in cooking. I had a mother who did it all. In doing it all, she never taught her daughters (or sons) how to cook. So this is a new project, to keep a record of meals that worked, at least for us. They are easy, don’t take much time, & taste good.

This one has too much salt since I use a Campbells Dinner sauce in a bag. But it was good, has veggies, not bad. Currently we are not eating breads, rice, noodles, any pasta, you get the gyst. Just meat, veggies, fruit.

This is just browned chicken tenders in oil, (3 kinds of)pepper, Italian seasoning, chopped onion & green pepper I get at Target in a bag already chopped, then Campbellā€™s Parmesan dinner sauce that comes in a bag. Lima beans on the side. I also put some green beans in it, cooked in the bag first, then dumped in w/ chicken.
