This is a series of College Student Meals with weekly dinner menus and complete grocery list for college student who has limited cooking skills and time.
EASY CHICKEN STIR FRY
Thaw 1 cup of the frozen broccoli. (This can easily be done by running warm water over it)
Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a large pan over a medium high heat. Add the chicken breasts. Cook for about 4 minutes each side or until there is no pink in the middle of the chicken when you cut it. Remove the chicken from the pan, slice it into strips and set aside.
Heat another tablespoon of oil in the same pan. Add 1 cup of broccoli, carrots and 2 tablespoons of teriyake sauce. Stir until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the chicken strips and cook for 2-3 minutes.
TOMATO SOUP WITH TUNA SANDWICH
Open a can of Campbell’s Tomato Soup and pour into a small pot. Add one cup of water and stir until heated. Remove from heat.
Open a can of tuna. Drain the water out of the can and pour into a bowl. Mix a tablespoon of mayonnaise, a little salt and a little pepper, chop a little celery and mix in with the tuna. Toast two slices of bread. Put mustard on both slices of toast, add lettuce and tomato and spoon on the tuna. Add pickles to the sandwich if you like.
Follow the directions to make the pancakes on the Bisquick box.
