Tropical Chicken & Veggies

Tropical Chicken & Veggies ~ This quick-to-make meal is one of my favorites when I just need to get dinner on the table in a hurry.  We really love the unexpected flavor of the tropical fruit in the gravy.  Yummy!

When I'm feeling uninspired in the kitchen & I just need to get dinner on the table, I'll make this easy meal ~ Tropical Chicken & Veggies.

It's really quick to make ~ dinner on the table in about 15-20 minutes.  I'll start by chopping up some veggies & steaming them in the microwave (using a neat microwave steamer I got from The Pampered Chef, years ago).  While those are cooking, I'll make up some Bisto Chicken Gravy (or you could use your favorite jarred chicken gravy) & dump in about a 1/2 can of tropical fruit chunks & simmer on low until ready to serve.   While those are doing their thing, I'll cook up some chicken tenders on the George Foreman Grill & during the 5 minutes it takes to cook the chicken tenders, everything else is finishing up. (those pre-cooked Chicken Fajita Strips I get from Sam's Club are great for this meal, too.  See about them in my Fav Kitchen Food/Ingredients page)  If I have leftover rice, I'll heat it up & we'll eat that ~ if not, I just serve extra veggies.  If I'm feeling ambitious, I'll make a quick tossed salad or maybe just some sliced cucumbers/tomatoes.  When dinner is over, it's pudding cups all around for dessert.  On a night like tonight, quick & easy is definitely the way to go.   :)
