Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Celebrate Poultry Day & National Chocolate Caramel Day!

Yes, today is Poultry Day AND National Chocolate Caramel Day. Although I am way more excited about the chocolate/caramel aspect, I have lots of great chicken recipes.

Here is my Grandma's Chicken Casserole recipe:
5 chicken breasts (boneless/skinless), cooked and cubed
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup water
(1) 6 oz package of Swiss Cheese, sliced
(1) 8 oz package Stuffing/Dressing, Chicken flavored
1 stick butter/margarine

*Mix together cooked/cubed chicken, soup, and water. Spray baking dish with cooking spray. Put the chicken mixture into the baking dish. Lay Swiss Cheese slices on top of chicken.
*Melt butter. Add stuffing. Mix well. Pour stuffing on top of Swiss Cheese.
*Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

For a different option, but still delicious, try my Chicken Skillet recipe!
3 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cubed
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
3 Tbpn BBQ Sauce
Fresh vegetables. I use whatever I have in my fridge at the time.
    Here's an example: 1 large onion, thinly sliced
                                 1/4 head cabbage, sliced
                                 1 bell pepper, seeded and cubed
                                 1/2 head broccoli
                                 1 zucchini, sliced
                                 1 cup carrots, sliced

*Cook the cubed chicken and onion over medium heat in a large skillet (if it is not a non-stick pan, spray with cooking spray first).
*Add carrots, bell peppers, ground pepper, and 1 cup water. Cover and let simmer until carrots almost tender.
*Add zucchini, broccoli, and cabbage. Add extra water if needed. Stir in BBQ Sauce. Cover and return to simmer.
*Cook until vegetables are almost tender. Remove lid to cook off excess water. Cook until vegetables tender.

For dessert, make sundaes! (Maybe a chocolate ice cream with caramel sauce, or a vanilla ice cream with chocolate and caramel sauce.) For a super easy dessert, try my all time favorite,  Turtles!
