Deliciously Easy Dinner!

I love to cook and bake. Which is entirely different than having the time to cook and bake! If I didn't have to work and could stay home (and not have all those pesky day-to-day!) I would have a great meal prepared every night. But back to reality...  I love Tastefully Simple and how easy they make it to get dinner ready. I love it so much that I signed up as a consultant about 2 years ago. I don't do a lot of parties, but I use the products all the time so I figured I might as well get the discount. Here's a ridiculously easy dinner I made that is incredibly tasty! Even my mom enjoyed complaints! Don't get me wrong, mom is not one of those overly critical people. But she has had one massive stroke and a few small ones and strokes can change your personality. So if being critical is the worst of it...I can handle that; she's mom and she's still with me :)  She usually gives me "it was good but..." or "can I make a suggestion..." type of remark. And when I made this I got "you can make this again"... so it's a hit!!

Chicken Bake (from the Tastefully Simple Nov. 2013 Simply Dinners menu)
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup Tastefully Simple Vidalia Onion Dressing
2 cups shredded Italian blend cheese

Place chicken in baking dish, top with TS Vidalia Onion Dressing and shredded cheese. Bake at 375 for about 40 minutes or until browned and bubbly....and dinner is ready.

I only had cheddar cheese in the house and used that instead and a little less cheese and it was still delicious.

I have to admit, I am not a big Vidalia onion dressing person. I have never used it on a salad. But I love the Tastefully Simple Vidalia Onion Dressing on tuna and canned salmon. I like to mix it in and put it over a nice salad, maybe add some pine nuts and dried cranberries...that's another "you can make this again" dish!

If you're wondering what Simply Dinners's the scoop...
So what is your favorite quick and easy dinner to make?



  1. Joyce that looks delicious. You have my mouth watering here in Australia. :D My favourite quick and easy dinner is Chilli Con Carne. TFS your deliciousness

  2. Chili is perfect for the cold weather we've been having...I might need to get the crock pot out!

  3. That looks delicious Joyce! An easy supper for me is ham steak, baked sweet potato and a vegie or side salad. Or anything that is quick and easy to make and doesn't take a lot of time. I do love to cook and bake and find that I'm in the kitchen way more than I'd like to be at times though. I am at home all the time and we rarely eat out, so thus why I'm in the kitchen all the time. And with 6 grown boys, doesn't matter if they live here anymore, I am always cooking/baking for them all. lol

  4. Sounds like your boys are like my brother when he was single...stop at mom's for dinner and grab some leftovers to!
