Peach Chutney Chicken Salad – 15 Minute Meal

Peach Chutney Chicken Salad

 

This is some of the best chicken salad I think I’ve ever eaten.

The addition of peach chutney and curry powder really elevates this stand-by.

The Peach Chutney gets made in the slow cooker and then frozen in small batches.  I’ve loved having it in the freezer.  I’ve made 15 Minute Chicken Curry Skillet using the chutney several times already.

You can have this chicken salad ready in less than 15 minutes, providing you have chicken cooked and ready to go.  I keep chicken in the freezer for fast meals like this.

And although I used homemade chutney, you can also use a jar of store-bought.

Slow Cooker Jerk Chicken Sandwiches with Cucumber Mango Salsa

There’s something about the warm weather that suddenly makes me feel like I’m living on some gorgeous, tropical island. As soon as summer hits, Caribbean-inspired meals end up making it into our dinner rotation a lot more often. Usually, this means lots of grilling – but some days the convenience of the slow cooker just wins out.

JerkChicken

This dish is inspired by a lunch we had on vacation in Honduras a few years ago. The combo of spicy jerk chicken paired with the cool cucumber mango salsa is perfect for summer. And, it couldn’t be easier. The chicken can be prepped in about five minutes before I walk out the door for work and the salsa only takes another ten minutes or so when I get home – which means more time to get outside and enjoy the summer sun!   [Read more…]

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders

I’ve really been loving hot sandwiches lately. Sandwiches – in general – are always one of my go-tos on busy days, but since it’s been so cold, I’ve been highly favoring hot meals. A nice, toasty sandwich that I can have in hand in just a few minutes? Sounds perfect.

Sliders

These easy sandwiches are actually something I came up with in college – a quick way to feed a crowd. They’ve got the flavors of the fancy restaurant chicken cordon bleu with a fraction of the effort. With only five ingredients, it’s something you can easily pick up to make on your way home from work. I usually serve it along with potato chips and a big green salad for dinner, but these would also make a great munchies for a party.

For these, I bought already-cooked grilled chicken to speed up the prep a little more, but you can cook your own and dice or shred it up.

Slow Cooker Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches with Creamy Ranch Slaw

Can you believe we’ve made it to Day 75 in our Summer Slow Cooker Recipes series?  There have been such a variety of recipes shared.  Scroll to the bottom of this post and you’ll find a link to all of them.  

The combo of chicken, bacon and ranch is one of my favorites. In my opinion, any dish with the three of them is bound to be good. One morning when I was pressed for time and trying to think of something to throw in the slow cooker for dinner, I realized I had all three on hand – and these sandwiches were born!

ChickenBaconRanch

These are a great go-to dinner, especially in warm weather. Despite being a hot sandwich, the cool ranch slaw makes these feel light and refreshing.  I love to pair these with fries and some veggies with dip.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Italian Sausage Sloppy Joes – 15 Minute Meal

Italian Sausage Sloppy Joes

 

I created this sandwich a few weeks ago on a night when I was in a hurry.  I’ve fallen into a bad habit of working in the afternoon.  That’s not the bad part.  The bad part comes in when I finally look up at the clock and realize it’s already 5:30 and I haven’t started dinner.

I forget which meal this Italian sausage was meant for, but it worked perfectly in these sloppy joes.  And the good thing is, you probably have all the other ingredients in your pantry.

They also can be made in about 15 minutes.  Perfect!

This Italian spin on the traditional sloppy joe tastes a lot like pizza.  Which meant that my family loved them.  So did I.  They reminded me a lot of the flavor of Pizza Potpie.

I don’t have an ingredient photo this time, because I was creating in a huge hurry.  But, like I said, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.  With the exception of the Italian sausage, they are all very common ingredients.   [Read more…]

10 Minute French Dip Sandwiches

I always feel like life is supposed to slow down after the holidays, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. This is one of my go-to meals for busy days – it’s on the table ten minutes after I walk into the kitchen. You really can’t beat that!

I recommend about a quarter of a pound of roast beef per adult to make a good, hearty sandwich. And with bubbly cheese and Italian seasoning, it doesn’t feel like you’re eating “just a sandwich” for dinner.

We usually serve these along with a big salad or veggies and dip.

10 Minute French Dip Sandwiches
Ingredients
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 lb. roast beef
  • 4 long rolls
  • Mayonnaise
  • Italian seasoning
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
Instructions
  1. Add the beef broth to a large skillet over high heat. When the broth starts to steam, reduce heat to medium and add the roast beef and cover. Let warm for about five minutes, until the roast beef is no longer pink.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven broiler. Slice rolls in half and place them on a baking sheet cut side up. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on the top side of the buns and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  3. When the roast beef is warm, remove it from the broth using a slotted spoon or tongs and divide between the rolls. Lay two slices of cheese over the roast beef on each roll.
  4. Broil for 2-3 minutes, until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Serve with extra broth for dipping.

Pan Fried Shrimp Sandwiches with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Last summer, we spent time in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  We ate most of our meals at the beach house, but we did go out once.  After taking a quick survey on Facebook and seeing several readers recommendation Sea-N-Suds, we decided to try it.

Great choice!  It was inexpensive, casual and right on the beach.  I chose to try the Shrimp Sandwich, which was loaded with breaded, deep-fried shrimp.  Delicious!

This pan fried version is simple enough for a weeknight dinner.  It probably rings in at a few less calories than the deep-fried version too.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:  [Read more…]

Toasted Apple and Brie Sandwiches on Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This simple sandwich proved to be one of the best meals I’ve had all year.  Thin slices of Granny Smith apple and brie, tucked inside cinnamon swirl bread then toasted.  Divine!

This idea is not my own, but I can’t remember where I first saw it.  It’s been quite a while, maybe even a year ago.  [Read more…]

French Dip Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

4 ingredients (6 if you count the cheese and buns) + 1 slow cooker = 1 splendiferous dinner.  And, in case you wondered, splendiferous is in the online thesaurus.  It’s a more funtastic word than “good”, don’t you think?

I used cube steaks to make these sandwiches, but you can use round steak or another cut if you like.  Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…]
