New Years come and go! Every year there is a rush on healthy food, gym memberships, and exercise equipment. Most people’s New Years Resolutions include loosing weight. That has been my resolution for awhile! I just seem to be having a difficult time!  3 kids do something to you! :)

Anyway, In my efforts to eat better and save money, I came up with this quick and easy dinner.  It is super simple.  Really delicious, and low in calories! Added bonus…everybody will love it!

Here is the detailed recipe with (Hold Your Breath) …the matchups and grocery list after! Yes, it is back! I have matched this recipe with the Publix sale this week! You can make it for a whopping $2.27 a person…that includes salad!  You could make it for less if you have some of the ingredients on hand.

  • 2 Cups Cooked Chicken cut into bite sized pieces (about 2 breasts)
  • 1 cup Italian Salad Dressing
  • 1 box pasta cooked (Shape of your choice)
  • 1 bag frozen veggies (again your choice…I like broccoli)
  • Shaky Cheese (Grated Parmesan) Optional


In a large skillet mix 2 Cups Cooked Chicken Breast chopped into bite sized pieces, 1 cup Italian Salad Dressing, 1 box of pasta cooked al dente (I used Bow Ties), and frozen veggies ( I chose Broccoli).

Cook over medium heat until heated through.

Serve! Top with cheese if desired!

Yes, its that easy!

My kids loved this.  The little one ate 2 bowls.  I also, halved the recipe since it was just the kids and I eating.


Cook Chicken when you bring it home from store.  Place in freezer bags for quick meals, or salads!

Cook pasta the night before, so you just have to toss it all together! You will have dinner in 10 minutes!

Change it up! Use a different type of veggie and salad dressing for a different taste!

This is super kid friendly!
