True Confession: I use cheater chicken.
I swore I never would…that it is a waste of money to buy the pre-cooked, pre-seasoned, pre-cut packages of chicken when it “takes no time at all to cook up your own chicken breast.” I can hear my ever-practical mother saying “how ridiculous that people would buy that” in my head.
Well….. sorry, mom. There are nights after a long day of work, misc. after work errands, workouts or activities, homework review, and working around a family’s busy schedule, that warming up cheater chicken, putting ceasar dressing on it, and putting it in a wrap with some lettuce is dinner. Is it gourmet? Not in the slightest. It most likely isn’t even terribly healthy. But does it mean that within a few minutes, we can all stop what we are doing, and have supper together to reconnect before 10pm? Yes. And to me that means I’m not going to beat myself up over cheater chicken. I’m going to be thankful for it.
And what about you? What is your incredibly fast “cheater” dinner when you need it? Please share, and maybe we can all add a little variety to our speed meals.
