We live in such a busy world that it is nearly impossible to find food that is delicious, with lots of nutrition benefits and is easy to make. Nobody wants to spend hours per day waiting for food that is incredibly difficult to make. Especially if you are the kind of person who is too tired to make food after a long day at work. You just want to turn on the best tea kettle and pour some tea with food you don’t have to labor for all day.
Here, I have found you the best cooking recipes that you can use every day. These recipes are relatively easy to make, with little preparation required. All of these recipes can be done without any fancy equipment and are incredibly delicious once finished.
Green Chili Chicken Stew.
This is the kind of stew that you can eat on those wintery days where you need warmth and energy. Stews typically require very little prep time, but do take a long time to cook. You can leave the stew cooking for long periods of time and best of all, it tastes fantastic every time.
Although that does look like a whole lot of ingredients, in reality it is nothing prepared to the number of servings that you can have from this recipe. Eight servings mean that you can have this dish over a week where all you have to do is scoop up the stew and eat. No need to prepare this stew eight different times over the course of the week and compared to other dishes, you are guaranteed food that is delicious every time.
1 (4 pound) whole chicken.
1 teaspoon ground cumin.
1 teaspoon dried thyme.
1 teaspoon dried marjoram.
1 tablespoon dried basil.
1 (4 ounce) can canned green chili peppers, chopped.
4 habanero peppers, seeded and minced.
1 onion, chopped.
2 cloves garlic, minced.
5 carrots, chopped.
5 stalks celery, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes (optional).
3 potatoes, peeled and cubed.
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Boil the chicken in a large pot at medium heat for two and a half hours. Add cumin, thyme and marjoram into the pot along with water to cover the chicken. Once done, remove the chicken from the pot and cool the chicken down by leaving the chicken in a cool place in the kitchen. Then, remove the bones and any skin from the cooked chicken. Chop up the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Once that is done, put the chicken back into the pot and add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 30 minutes or pressure cook for about 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix flour and water together before putting into the pot. Serve hot with salt and pepper.
Tip: don’t leave the stew cooking for too long. You will dry the chicken up and make the vegetables mushy. Allow the chicken to cook for at least the two and a half hours as specified. Also, at least heat up the stew before eating.
Mushroom Pork Chops.
This has got to be one of the very most taste-worthy recipes that you can get. Only taking one hour to make, this recipe is delicious with the pork chops and the chopped mushroom. On top of that there is the creamy mushroom soup which is poured onto the whole food.
Here are the ingredients.
- 4 pork chops.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- 1 pinch garlic salt, or to taste.
- 1 onion, chopped.
- 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced.
- 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup (enough to cover the pork chops with, generally 10.75 ounces).
First, season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Then in a pan, brown the pork over a medium to high heat. Sauté the pork with mushrooms and onions for about one minute and then pour cream of mushroom soup over those pork chops. Once that is done, cover the pan and reduce the temperature to a medium-low heat. Allow the food to simmer for about 20 to 20 minutes until the pork chops are cooked.
Italian Sausage,The Peppers And Onions.
This is arguably one of the simplest recipes that you can make for dinner which has the protein, vegetables and fruit all added into a dish that is easy to make. Requires little time and you can be enjoying the most of the dish within the hour.
- 6 links sweet soft Italian sausage.
- 2 tablespoons butter.
- 1 sliced yellow onion.
- 1/2 red onion, sliced.
- 4 clove garlic which has been minced.
- 1 sliced large red , bell pepper.
- 1 sliced green bell pepper.
- 1 teaspoon dried basil.
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano.
- 1/4 cup white wine.
Cook sausage in a good large pan and brown all sides of the sausage. Once done, remove from the pan and slice into however many pieces that you want.
Using that same pan, melt butter. Stir in the butter with yellow onion with red onion and garlic for about 2-3 minutes. Then mix red and green bell peppers before seasoning with basil with oregano. Once that is done, stir in a white wine and then cook until the peppers and the onions are soft.
Once that is done, return the sausage to the pan and reduce the energy of heat to low and cover the pan to simmer for about 15 minutes and/or until the sausage is cooked through.
So that’s the three recipes that I have offered you. Try them out at home and make sure that you are comfortable with using these recipes. Especially with the first one; I mean with the number of ingredients there, you might not be comfortable with finding loads of ingredients when you just want a few.
The best thing about these recipes is that if you are a busy person, you can enjoy the benefits of cooking recipes that require the limited amounts of food preparation and that will make your life easier in the long run.
However, you should also go out of your way to find your own recipes for whatever lifestyle that you want. Do not be afraid to try recipes that are unfamiliar; if you don’t like a recipe, don’t use that recipe again. Life is too short to be cooking recipes that are not suited to you as a person.
