Sweet and Sour Meatballs with noodles.

My grandchildren love them. Make your meatballs (however you usually make them) and in a pot use 1 jar of Bennett's chilli and 1/2 jar of grape jelly (don't ask the oz., I'm at work and can't check ... but it is a small jar of jelly.) Rinse the chilli bottle with about 1/2 of the bottle's worth of water and add this to the pot. Literally boil your meatballs in this mixture. Because the jelly gets really hot, this cooks very quickly. They really come out sweet and yummy. Use the sauce over regular noodles.

[You can add more chilli and more jelly if you want to make more meatballs]

Just a suggestion (perhaps you have heard of this before). Laughing Laughing

Quesadeas

We actually have a quesadeas maker. It is great and well worth $20 I spent for it. When we have leftover chicken, we make them and for the children, we just add cheese and chicken between 2 tortillas, sometimes a little sour cream. For the adults, we warm up some refried beans and include them.

If you don't have an actual quesadea maker, roll the chicken, cheese, and whatever other ingredients your children will eat and make it into a burrito-looking roll. Pan fry this quickly to melt cheese and warm up the chicken. Even if my grandchildren won't finish all we make, these can be wrapped and rewarmed at another time. Sometimes I take leftovers for my lunch at work.

Hope I've given you a few suggestions. Now it is off tpick up my grandson from school.

Off the top of my head..

1 lb ground beef
1 cup premium instant rice
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/3 c soy sauce
water...maybe 1/2 cup? (enough to cook the rice)
chinese noodles (the skinny hard ones in the can or package)

Cook ground beef until brown. mix together all ingredients, pour in casserole dish...top with chinese noodles. Bake 350 for 30 minutes.

Add a little more rice if you want...but make sure you add a little more water. I usually cook more than 1 lb of meat as well. Add a little more soy sauce too if you want...It's really hard to mess this up! lol

Add a side veggie and it's a meal. My boys loved this.

How about nacho's? Brown ground beef with onions and spices to your liking. Put over Nacho chips top with cheese, broil until cheese melts. Then get sour cream, salsa and what ever else you want to use as dip and enjoy. I love them.

I prefer brown rice too. I think it has more flavor than the plain ole white rice.

Your beef and broccoli sounds so good, Pimp! Please, please, please post the recipe?

As for kids and chicken, I'll tell one of my grandkids' favorites, and, it's unbelievably easy!

Lawry's makes a series of bottled 30-minute marinades. I'm sure you've seen them at your grocery store. Anyway, my grandkids favorite -- the one they request all the time -- is called "Herb & Garlic with Lemon Juice." It is so tasty! Just marinade your chicken breasts, grill, and serve with a side or a salad. Yum!

Here is a meal that kid's love to make and eat and there are no dishes.

Taco In A Bag


Make ground beef for tacos (however you flavor it)
Chop tomatoes
Grated cheese
Shredded lettuce

Anything else you would put in tacos….sour cream, black olives, hot sauce

You need individual bags of Doritos for this. Take one individual bag and crush Doritos by squeezing bag. Open bag and put an amount of ground beef mixture, shredded lettuce, grated cheese, tomatoes, and whatever else you want. Take a fork and enjoy.


timeless....... we call these "walking Tacos" adn we sell them at the games in our concessions.....
The kids LOVE them!

Hey, Pimp! I wanted to be sure to tell you . . .

You have got to try Shirley's recipe for Garlic Chip Chicken (see the index at the top of this board)!! Your kids will love it. I doubled her recipe and made two big pans of the stuff for Christmas, and it is to die for. My grandkids kept going back for seconds, thirds, fourths, because -- to quote my 9-year-old grandson as he reached for his fifth (or so) piece -- "this probably isn't very healthy with all those potato chips, but it sure tastes good." Laughing Laughing Laughing (His dad's always telling him to lay off the potato chips. Even dad, though, loved the Garlic Chip Chicken.)

I'm thinking about making another batch for New Year's Eve, when the grandkids come over for their traditional slumber party at Nana's house.
