My sister gave birth to an adorable little boy 6 days ago and being that new moms are always exhausted, I decided to make her some toss-in-the-oven dinners so that she would have one less thing to worry about.
So here are 5 Easy Meals to Make for New Moms!
The first thing I did was cook 2-3lbs of boneless chicken breast in a crock pot with a cup of water. I let that sit all day on low while I did my other work and came back to it in the evening. The chicken was used in 4 of the 5 meals.
Chicken and Rice
2 pieces of cooked chicken breast shredded 1 cup of brown rice
1 can of cream of chicken soup + 1 can of water
Add soup and water and mix well, pour 1 cup of rice on the bottom of the pan and mix in shredded chicken.
Cook at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Easy Chicken Pan Pie
2 pieces of cooked chicken breast shredded or cubed
2 cups of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup
2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables
1 can of flaky biscuits
Place chicken broth and cream of chicken soup in the bottom of the container, add frozen vegetables and shredded/cubed chicken, place biscuits on top. Cook for time alloted on biscuit can.
2 pieces of cooked chicken breast shredded2 Potatoes cubed
1-2 cups frozen vegetables
1-2 cups of chicken broth
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Mentally divide the container into 3 parts, in one part place the chicken, in another place the cubed potatoes, add cheddar cheese on top of the potatoes, in the last third add the frozen vegetables, pour in chicken broth over the vegetables and chicken.
Cook at 350 for 40 minutes or until you poke potatoes and they are soft.
3-4 shredded chicken breasts2 cups of BBQ sauce
Mix together, warm up for 15 minutes at 350. Bring buns to serve on!
Best Baked Macaroni and Cheese
2-3 cups elbow macaroni cooked according to packaged directions
8oz of Velveeta Cheese

Add the velveeta cheese to the cooked and drained macaroni until it’s melted and incorporated. Pour into the pan, add and mix in sour cream. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on, then sprinkle breadcrumbs on.
