       Chicken makes a wonderful 'Stroganoff', cooks quickly and is very tender. Finish the mushrooms in the Stroganoff.  

Chicken Stroganoff with Pasta

Total time: 30 minutes
    Chicken breast, cut up and quickly cooked, makes a very tender meat for the Stroganoff.  You may never go back to the traditional Beef! I break from tradition again, using Greek yogurt rather than the sour cream.  Greek yogurt is thicker and creamier than regular plain yogurt, but lower in fat and calories than sour cream.

 Instructions:

Peas with Parmesan

Total time: 15 minutes
    I try to keep prepared, canned and frozen food to a minimum, but some foods, like peas, I think are actually better frozen; as well as difficult to get fresh.  And easy is nice....
