So last week I tried out a recipe I had to throw together on the fly on Monday morning (shopping didn't get done like I had anticipated it would). It turned out so well that I decided to keep it and add it to my daily plan.
Aitrus' BFL Quick Chicken Chili - makes two or three meals, depending on serving preference and goals
Prep time: 10 - 12 minutes
4oz can of mushrooms
15oz can of VanCamp's Kidney Beans
14.5oz can of Hunt's Petite Diced Tomatoes
12.5oz can of Tyson Chunk Chicken
Cumin and Chili powder
Drain and rinse the beans, chicken and mushrooms to get rid of the extra sodium. Don't rinse the tomatoes - we're using the tomatoes and juice as a base. Dump all ingredients into a medium-size pot on medium heat. Add ground cumin and chili powder to taste (might take some experimentation to get the mix right for your tastes). While stirring regularly, bring to a simmer for 2-3 minutes. Spoon into microwaveable travel bowls (I use CorningWare bowls with handles and lids on them). Serving size comes out to somewhere between 2 and 2 1/2 cups of food.
Nutrient value per meal if divided into two (taken from can labels, so rinsing will likely lower all numbers a little due to removal of sugars, salt, etc):
