I actually made up an original recipe! Holy cow! Or should I say chicken…

I boiled chicken breasts this morning to use for my planned dinner, only to realize that I was missing a seriously important ingredient to prepare my first plan. I looked through what was already here and decided to make up a little something of my own.

What you will need:

Chicken breast shredded (can make ahead of time or just pull some from a rotisserie)
About a cup of cooked baby carrots (I boiled mine in a little water while making the gravy)
Soured gravy mix (the white gravy, or homemade if you like)
Can of biscuits (I used Publix)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven as directed by biscuit directions.
2. Shred chicken.
3. Mix gravy according to instructions on packet.
4. Place biscuits in a baking dish (sprayed with nonstick or greased).
5. Layer chicken on top of biscuits.
6. Slice carrots if you like and place over chicken.
7. Evenly pour gravy on top.
8. Bake according to biscuit directions.
9. Enjoy!

**you could add celery, peas, corn, onions, Whatever you fancy. Tastes like chicken and dumplings without the mushy dumpling taste. Yummy! It was a hit with my toddlers.

I couldn’t figure out what to make for dinner the other night. I knew we had some leftover burger buns from a cookout. I thawed out ground turkey but wanted something to make using both and things that I already had on hand. I came across Six Sisters recipe. Six Sisters Sloppy Joe

I did not have onions, green peppers, or celery on hand so I omitted them. Instead of ketchup I used Bulls Eye BBQ sauce. I also added thinly sliced carrots (leftover from a veggie tray!) and a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. It turned out delicious! I am not a photographer, just snapped a quick pic before I ate it! My boys really enjoyed it too. I made fries to go with them fromfries
