Here’s a couple you can make in your skillet:
CHICKEN IN HONEYED TOMATOES
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1/ 2 cup dry white wine
6 Tbsp. honey
1/ 2 tsp. dried tarragon leaves
1/ 2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
3/ 4 cup pitted black olives, halved
1 Tbsp. chopped parsley
Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken about 5 minutes per side. Remove and keep warm. In same skillet, cook onion and garlic until soft. Stir in tomatoes, wine, honey, thyme and tarragon. Simmer, uncovered, until thickened. Return chicken to sauce. Add olives. Cover and cook another 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
SUMMER SKILLET SUPPER
1 (1 lb.) fully-cooked ham slice
2 large tomatoes
1 clove garlic, minced
1 medium size green pepper
1 medium size onion
1 medium size yellow squash (about 1/ 2 lb.)
2 medium zucchini (about 1 lb. total)
3 Tbs. olive oil
1/ 2 cup chicken broth or 1 envelope instant chicken broth mixed with 1/ 2 cup water
2 tsp.fresh chopped basil or 1/ 2 tsp. dried basil
1/ 2 tsp salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp. pepper
Cut ham into 1/ 4 inch strips, about 1-1/ 2 inches long. Cut each tomato into 8 wedges; cut pepper into 1/ 2 inch wide strips and onion into thin lengthwise slivers. Cut squashes into 1/ 4 inch wide slices, halving lengthwise if larger than 1 inch in diameter.
In wok or large skillet over medium high heat, cook ham and all vegetables, except tomatoes, in hot oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining ingredients, except tomatoes; stir and cook until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Add tomato wedges and continue cooking until tomatoes are heated through.
Here is my favorite crock pot recipe:
Mix a can of cream of mushroom soup with a package of Lipton onion soup mix with a little worchestershire and spread it on top of a roast and cook all day in the crock pot. It makes a deliciously tender roast and a wonderful gravy. You can thicken up the gravy if desired by stirring in some flour water and cooking a while.
Another idea is to cook chicken breasts with taco seasonings and then shred the chicken and make soft chicken tacos with your favorite toppings such as tomatoes, lettuce, pico, avacado, and sour cream.
Ok, we bought our house in May and lo and behold, our stove does not work. It’s expensive to get a new one and since then, I’ve been stuck using a crock pot ***shudder*** or an electric skillet, and toasting in a toaster over that our neighbor gave me…
Does anyone have any skillet or crock pot recipes that actually taste like food??? I would KILL for even a nasty casserole, but with no over, I’m stuck. Thanks in advance! We’re getting sick of this crock pot mash we always seem to eat. YUCK!
Here’s my problem…
