Chicken!

Chicken is by far the largest percentage of meat we consume.  It doesn't seem to matter how I cook it, it's a meal the boys enjoy.  Happy dinner = happy mom!   Unfortunately, I get bored of chicken when it's the same old, same old.

Some days, I'll throw a little bit of broth and some (4) boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crockpot, frozen or thawed, high or low, cook until I think it's done (3-6 hours depending on the other variants.)  I then have precooked meat for other meals.

On weekends by the time dinner time rolls around, the last thing I feel like doing is cooking.  So yesterday I did some crockpot breasts - we threw two into a creamy cheesy pasta and tonight I subbed the other two in this BHG Mango Chicken Salad with Coconut Recipe.

I used a whole can of coconut milk.  I was missing a mango.  I added a bit of honey to sweeten.  I served it on tortillas (wraps) instead of lettuce.  The sauce was a little runny...

...but overall, it was a tremendous hit!  They even asked for seconds.  I think it would be delish on a coconut or jasmine rice.  Gotta love a new and oh-so-easy keeper!
