Tasty Tuesday!!!

Every Tuesday I am going to try to post some of my favorite and very cheap recipes!!!! Since this is the first Tuesday I will give you 3! Ready, set, go!!!!

Chicken Salad
3 Chicken Breasts
Chicken broth (enough to boil the chicken with)
1 tbsp mustard
1/3-1/2 cup mayonnaise (to taste)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Dash of sugar
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Minced garlic w/juice (about 1 tsp, I used already minced garlic in the jar)
Pickle (finely chopped)

Boil the chicken breasts in the broth. Chop chicken into small pieces. Mix chicken, mustard, mayonnaise, salt and pepper, sugar, lemon juice, garlic and pickle. Mix well.

Taco Soup
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
280z can diced tomatoes (undrained)
16 oz can kidney beans (undrained)
17oz whole kernel corn (undrained)
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 pkg dry taco seasoning
1-2 cups water or tomato juice
shredded cheese, tortilla chips and sour cream

Brown beef, drain and add onion. Cook until onions are tender. Add all remaining ingredients except cheese, tortilla chips and sour cream. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. Ladle into bowls and top with cheese, tortilla chips and sour cream. Enjoy!!!

Crock Pot Chicken
1 1/2 lbs chicken breast (boneless)
5 minced garlic cloves (I use minced garlic in the jar found in the produce section)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup chicken broth
1tbsp rosemary

Place butter and garlic in microwave and melt butter. Roll chicken in the garlic-butter mixture and place in crock pot. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add broth to the remaining garlic-butter mixture and add to the crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Sometimes you may have to add a little more broth. After they have cooked they breast will fall apart, I usually serve over rice.

I hope you enjoy and I certainly will not argue if you want to share your recipes as well!!! You can just add them to the comments!
