If you’re like me, you get to the end of the day, ohhh say 4-5 o’clock and it hits you. “What am I going to make for dinner?” Uggggh. Frozen pizza again? Tomato soup and grilled cheese? Would it take too long to thaw meat for tacos? And then I spend the whole commute home planning what the heck I’m going to make. Not to mention, “What am I going to fix for Brady??” I so wish every night I could make a meal and he would eat what we are eating, but those are few and far between. He likes certain things and certain textures which, of course, can change on a daily basis. And don’t even get me started on veggies. I have to sneak in those stinkers in wherever I can. Cue Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup. Throw that puppy in a casserole and kiddos gobble it right up. I make several recipes that are easy (check!), FAST (check, check!) and Brady will eat it (bonus!).
Campbell’s soup offers delicious recipes your kids will give two chubby thumbs up to. Check some out here. I can share some of the recipes I love in another post, but in the meantime, I have to share an all-time fave.
The almighty Creamy Crunchy Chicken:
2 cups of cooked chicken
1 can Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup
1 can Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup
8oz Sour Cream
1 sleeve of Ritz Crackers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, mix together soups, sour cream, chicken and 1/3-1/2 of the Ritz crackers crushed. Add as much poppy seeds as your heart desires (depending on when your next drug test is, I kid) as well as pepper. Pour mixture into your favorite casserole dish. Top with the remaining Ritz crackers, crushed, and top with however much melted butter your arteries can handle. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. NOM.
Recipes like these are great because you can take them, twist’em, add to’em, do what you want and they’re still delicious. Find new ideas at Campbellskitchen.com. This site has great ideas when accommodating kiddos, like Mini Chicken Pot Pies and new ways to eat Tomato Soup. Who doesn’t like to dunk it with a hot grilled cheese or top it with Goldfish? Are ya hungry now? You’re welcome.
Campbell’s has been making our grandma’s grandma’s grandma’s meals delicious for more than 144 years, so you know they’re good. Oh, and a little Friday trivia for ya: Every can of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup has 32 feet of noodles just waiting to be slurped. Nifty, huh?
Ok, enough chit chat. Happy Hump Day and go make some yummy Creamy Crunchy Chicken.
