This past year I’ve had several opportunities to join a “meal train” for those in my community and family who have experienced a birth, adoption and a death. After those life-changing events, the last thing someone wants to worry about is what to feed their family. Finding meals that are easy to make, travel well and is something most people like can be challenging.
Here is a chicken and noodles “support meal” idea complete with links to all of the recipes.
Chicken and Noodles with Mashed Potatoes – I don’t usually follow a recipe, but this Pioneer Woman chicken and noodle recipe is very similar to what I make. However, I just cook bone-in chicken breasts in the slow cooker prior to making the recipe. Bone-in chicken breasts are inexpensive and I can purchase them for less than $1.00/lb. I make homemade noodles from this recipe or you can use Reames.
Asian Salad – This asian salad has become a part of all of our family get togethers. Everyone loves it and it doesn’t just go with asian style food. It travels easiest if you place the crunchies and salad in separate baggies and leave the dressing on the side.
Snickers dip – This is another fan favorite recipe that is easy to make ahead of time. It is also delicious with Heath bars in place of Snickers.
