Easy Recipes for a Busy Day

tuna

I cannot tell you how many evenings I have gotten home from work and balked at the idea of having to cook a complicated dinner. Sometimes life is too busy to make anything but easy food. To save you some time, here are two delicious easy recipes straight from my kitchen! Each will feed a family of four.

Tuna salad 

This is one of my favorite easy recipes! The ingredients you will need are: lettuce, two cans of tuna, mayo, a 2.25 ounce can of sliced black olives and 3 cups of cooked shell noodles.
Step 1: boil your noddles until they al dente. You can allow them to boil as you work on the rest of the steps. When the noodles are done boiling, allow them to cool.
Step 2: mix the tuna with 2-3 tablespoons of mayo– depending upon your taste. Set aside.
Step 3: chop up the lettuce as if you were chopping it for a regular salad. You are looking for about 2 1/2 cups, unpacked.
Step 4: mix the olives, cooled noodles, lettuce and tuna together.
Step 5: enjoy!

I usually cook french bread drizzled with olive oil to go along with the tuna salad salad.

Honey nut fried chicken tenders

The ingredients you’ll needs are: 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, one egg, 1/3 cup milk, 3 cups crushed honey nut cheerios and cooking oil.
Step 1: cut your chicken into thick strips.
Step 2: beat the egg in with the milk
Step 3: put about a half inch of cooking oil into a frying pan, and begin heating it on medium.
Step 4: dip one chicken strip into the milk and egg mixture, and then roll it in the honey nut cheerios.
Step 5: place strip into heated oil. Repeat steps 4 & 5 for each strip of chicken.
Step 6: cook each strip through until they are golden brown on both sides.
Step 7: enjoy!

See, dinner doesn’t have to be difficult to be delicious!
