These are meals that I don’t have a name for, or photos, but they are quick, easy and delicious, and so have earned a place in my Recipe Book!
Quick Meal 1 – Curry Chicken
Mix 2 small chopped onions 2 tbsp butter, turmeric, 2 tsp curry powder (or to taste). Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add 500g sliced chicken breast, 1 cup chicken stock and cook on medium high 10 minutes.

Quick Meal 2 – Chicken Casserole

Pour over chicken and veggies. Bake at 350°F/ 180°C for 20 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake for another 10 minutes.
Quick Meal 3 – Potatoes and Veggies Omelette
Brown chopped onions in a frying pan. Peel and grate 2 potatoes and add to the onions. Cook until soft. Add other veggies of choice – chopped carrot, broccoli, beans, corn, capsicum, peas etc., cook for 2 minutes and take off heat. Beat together 3 eggs, ½ cup milk, and 1 cup grated cheese. Add mixture to the frying pan with veggies and cook like an omelette. When bottom is set, flip over or put the frying pan under a grill(Be careful if the frying pan handle is plastic!).
