Manwich Chicken Pasta Skillet #ManwichMonday
Happy New Year everyone! I hope this year treats you right, and brings lots of success, happiness and joy. I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions (do you?), but I did make some goals this year. One of the most important is to always have dinner as a family no matter how stressful it can be with three little ones. Tonight, we will be celebrating Manwich Monday with a delicious Manwich Chicken Pasta Skillet that I made yesterday.
I do know about you all, but Manwich is a product I grew up on. My mom would always make Sloppy Joes when I was a kid. We all loved them, and they were the perfect quick meal idea. I remember running to the corner store to pick up a couple of cans of Manwich Original and then I’d watch my mom brown the hamburger for our sandwiches. They were so sweet, tangy, and yummy!
Now, as a mom to three, I like to think “outside the bun” when it comes to Manwich Monday. Cooking with hearty and better for you ingredients is something I am passionate about so I tend to mix things up and add Manwich sauce to chicken, and vegetable dishes. My most recent dish was so easy to make and required minimal effort. I boiled some whole grain pasta elbows, browned one lb of boneless, skinless chicken, an onion and combined it all with some cheese and some fresh parsley!
Bam! I had a nutritious Manwich Chicken Pasta Skillet meal that will even provide leftovers for tomorrow’s lunches! Got to love when that sort of luck happens!
- 1 can of Manwich Original
- 1 can of Manwich Thick & Chunky
