Recipe: Chicken and Pintos

So, last night's dinner was my own creation. Another Lazy Mom Recipe!

And as I was falling asleep last night I realized, you know what? I think I did this last Thursday, as well. SO I am kind of starting my own trend. Kind of!

Mom's Chicken and Pintos


* 1 roast chicken (doesn't have to be the entire chicken)

* 1 can pinto beans (drained)

* frozen corn

* 1/2 can chicken broth

* 1/2 can (see above) water

* 1 package of ready-made rice

Shred chicken [I used garlic seasoned].

Drain can of pinto beans and empty into crockpot over shredded chicken.

Add frozen corn (or other veggie(s) - this is a flexible recipe).

I didn't have chicken broth, or I would have put in about a cup of that, but I grabbed a can of generic chicken and stars soup, used about 1/2 the can, then added about 1/2 the same can of water to the mix.
Cook on low for 4 hours (possibly less) and serve over/with ready-made rice. I used the Rice Pilaf from Uncle Ben's with Orzo in it. I think the orzo gives it a little more texture.

Throw a pack of crescent rolls into the oven and about 8 minutes later you have yourself a complete meal! And this time I made the Great Value brand of crescent rolls, and they're delicious! The biscuits, not so much, but these were great. Maybe (gasp!) even better (gasp!) than Pillsbury! (GASP!)



  1. I am with you on lazy cooking, but your recipie sounds delicious! Technically, lazy would mean peanut butter on a spoon, so I don't think you're really lazy at all!

  2. Everyone can benefit from super easy recipes. Who doesn't have an inner lazy?

  3. Lazy is the best kind of recipe...sounds yummy!

  4. This is exactly my kind of recipe. I made one Monday from another blog and it was phenomenal. I think I'm hooked on blog recipes now. I'm seriously going to make this!

  5. This sounds yummy! Good to know about the Crescent rolls too. I just recently became a walmart convert :-)

  6. I love lazy mom recipes! All over it! Thankfully hubs won't be home tonight, so I don't have to cook. lol!!

    p.s. loving your makeover!

  7. This recipe sound good too! Yeah I agree lazy recipe would be PB on a spoon or as we just did tonight some rice chex! lol

  8. I'm sure this is totally not the right place to ask this, but how in the heck do I let people know about my blog? For example, how do i let the blogs I follow to know where to find my blog?
