Bourbon Chicken

18 Jan

The great thing about this recipe as a long term food storage meal is how fast and easy it is.  By the time the rice is cooked it’s ready to go!

Funny thing, while preparing this post I was trying to find the blog I found this recipe on once upon a time (without luck) when I came across the exact same sauce recipe on food.com.  Apparently it’s a popular one out there!  As a normal meal (or stored in your 3 month supply) you might choose to make it using frozen chicken and in that case you can check the recipe in the link …either way I think you’ll enjoy this simple meal.

Today’s recipe is another that was inspired by Karen at www.kneadfulthingsnow.com and highly successful at our dinner table.  Enjoy!

Note:  This recipe makes a hearty 8 – 10 servings.  In my food storage plan I plan for leftovers on purpose (to use for lunch the next day) but depending on your family size you might want to cut it in half.

Prep time:  15-20 minutes

If you’re looking for a meal to please the kids (or anyone else for that matter) this is definitely a recipe to try.  It comes from the book “The Everyday Gourmet” and it’s great!  For the biscuit recipe, rather than using a mix, I use the “Backcountry Biscuits” recipe from the same book and it works out perfectly while also helping to rotate some of the long term ingredients I store.

Makes 12 biscuits

Prep time:  30-40 minutes Continue reading

Oh, you’re going to love this one!  This is my food storage version of Emeril’s “Bayou Chicken Pasta” (original recipe found here).   It’s fabulous!!  The flavors in it are wonderful.  Think of it as linguine alfredo with a “kick”!

Arroz con Pollo

There are many variations on this dish.  If you already have a favorite Arroz con Pollo recipe chances are it can be turned into a food storage meal!  I chose this one, inspired by Chef Brad’s “Those Wonderful Grains II”, because it includes two grains that I store, quinoa and millet.  Also, mustering up my courage, I finally decided to give whole canned chicken it’s day in court.  I’ve been wondering for a while what this product was like — after trying it everyone here agreed, it really wasn’t bad!

Italian Chicken

This is a popular pantry meal at our table.   It comes from the book “100 – day Pantry” by Jan Jackson.  Since I can’t seem to leave well enough alone I twiddled with it, so the recipe here is different from the original recipe.  I doubled the amount of pasta it called for (it’s easier that way — all I have to do is buy a box of pasta, no measurement involved) and also I used all of the canned juices (rather than draining them) to cook the pasta.  It’s a quick meal requiring hardly any work!
