4 Ingredient Taco Chicken


•3 pounds of Boneless Chicken (I used half breast and half thigh)
•2 cans of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilis
•1 packet of Taco Seasoning
•about 1 cup of Chicken Broth

1.Pour the diced tomatoes into the slow cooker. Add the taco seasoning and mix thoroughly.
2.Place the chicken in the slow cooker.
3.Pour chicken broth over the chicken until the chicken is submerged in the broth and tomato mixture. Stir to combine everything.
4.Put the lid on the slow cooker and set to low. After 4-5 hours the chicken will be fall apart tender.
5.Use a fork to remove the chicken from the slow cooker. Shred with two forks.
6.Use a slotted spoon to scoop the tomatoes out of the sauce, and add to the chicken. Add about 1 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker to the chicken and stir. I discarded the extra liquid in the slow cooker, and returned the chicken to the slow cooker and set to the keep warm setting during the party.

Homemade Instant Oatmeal

This recipe is great - although it looks like it has more than 6 ingredients, it actually only has 5 ingredients for the oatmeal mix. Mix this up, then take a time-saving scoop and add a couple of ingredients to your liking to individualize it.

Apple Cobbler (cake mix)


2 cans apple pie filling
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cube margarine

Melt margarine and pour into cake mix. The mixture will be crumbly. Set aside. In a pyrex dish, add pie filling and lemon juice. Mix chopped nuts with the cake mix and margarine mixture and sprinkle over pie filling mixture. Bake at 375 for about 35 minutes or until the topping is golden brown.

Lazy Cookie Bars


1 (15 oz.) box yellow cake mix
2 eggs, beaten
5 tbsp. butter, melted
1 bag (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
I love to use the kind that has flour in it.
In your mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix with melted butter and beaten eggs.
This is easier if you have an electric or stand mixer because batter will be very thick.
Stir in bag of chocolate chips.
Spread batter into greased baking dish.
What I like to do is spray my hand with some nonstick cooking spray and then spread the batter around using my hand since the batter is very thick.
Once it is evenly spread out, put in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
It will puff up as it is cooking and be golden brown around the edges when it is done.
Allow to cool.
This makes a great base for some ice cream too.

Cook's Notes: The great thing about this recipe is all the variations you can make.
Feel free to use different types of chips or add in nuts. I really love when the holiday baking chips come out.
