Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

Super easy chicken dinner

You ever think about what might be a very easy and quick dinner? Well I did.

This is what I came up with. Put some pieces of chicken in the crock pot. Pour in a bottle of your favorite salad dressing and let it cook. Serve it over rice or noodles or what ever. It's that easy.

If you want a thicker sauce you can put corn starch in the juice before starting it to cook. By the time its done you should have a gravy like sauce. You can change the flavor by changing the type sauce you use. Mexican? Use Salsa. Italian? Use Italian dressing. Etc.
I had 20 bottle of salad dressing I bought a few months ago. I paid 20 cents a bottle with coupons. That was before I stopped using coupons. These were getting close to expiring and I had to come up with a way to use them or donate to the food bank. I'm sure my idea isn't original. Surely someone someplace has already thought of it. Still, it's original for me.
You can vary the type of meat you cook. Pork, beef, chicken, fish, polish sausage, spam.
You can vary the sauce. Thick sauce, thin sauce, catalina dressing, italian dressing, salsa, french dressing.
You can vary what its served over. Rice, beans, mixed vegetables, noodles, spaghetti, macaroni.
You can vary the bread to accompany it. Homemade, french loaf, texas toast, biscuits, crackers.
This should give you a few hundred different meal ideas. The combinations are endless.
