I had some chicken I needed to cook, so I threw these in the crockpot this morning. Good for me AND hubby.
boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
Put the chicken with a cup or two of salsa in the crockpot and turn on high. About an hour before dinner, add a cup or two of peanut butter, turn to low and cook until time to eat! Salt/pepper (which, as you know, I don't use) and cumin, to taste.
Alternate: THAI TURKEY! I made the chicken for him today, but for ME, I took a pound (16 oz) of ground turkey, browned it up in a skillet, added 1 cup salsa, 1 cup peanut butter, a dash of cumin and cooked it up! Divided it into 4 servings, gonna eat one tonight and the other three are in the freezer.
I eat mine as is, which is pretty low-carb (1 serving/4 oz = 14 carbs, 500 calories). I put Hubby's thai chicken on noodles, sometimes with extra peanuts. Both get topped with scallions (1 chopped for me, 2 chopped for him). (The Kid doesn't eat chicken any more.)

I was in a cooking mood today so I browned up some ground beef, added chili power, some onion/garlic powders and 1/4 cup of salsa. Was going to eat it with an avocado but it was bad! Sooo disappointed. So instead I just put 1/4 of the mixture in a bowl and ate it with 2 slices of provolone, with 2 chunks of cantaloupe on the side. Yummy lunch! The other 3 4-oz servings of my thai turkey are tucked away in the freezer, ready for me to munch on!
Moved the Kid's desk again (too much glare where it was). Then I worked on more of the Kid's schoolwork, exercycled some more (total 300 calories for today!), and did some laundry and house-cleaning. We have a busy weekend and didn't want to be concerned about things.
It's almost time for Hubby to get home for the week, so I gotta go. Peace!
Puzzling over a title - As I worked on my "instant meals" / "healthy homemade MREs" book this week, I realized I am still very unsure as to what title to use. The companion blog i...
