I’ve mentioned that lately my family has been very busy. Between work, the kids’ activities, preparing for a new baby, and all of the other day-to-day life activities, we just don’t have a lot of free time. It’s really easy to just grab some food on the way to an activity, but the cost for that adds up quickly.
So, I’ve been focusing more on fast, easy meals – like these Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers – to help with the meal-time rush. These dippers have a crisp, tortilla shell filled with tender, shredded chicken, diced onions and green peppers, and plenty of gooey, melted provolone cheese. So, they have all of the flavors of a chicken cheesesteak in a convenient, mess-free little package.
One of the things that I love about these Baked Chicken Cheesesteak Dippers (aside from how yummy they are), is how easy they are to make. In order to help make meals like this even faster, I make up a batch of shredded chicken to use in my recipes throughout the week. When I have a few extra minutes, I just boil the chicken breasts. Then, I shred them with two forks once they’re cool enough to handle, and I portion them into baggies. With the chicken cooked and shredded, this recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make, including the baking time.
This is an ideal recipe because these dippers can be an appetizer, a quick lunch, an afternoon snack, or an easy dinner. With a new baby due soon and a busy family, I’m always looking for quick meal suggestions. So, what tips do you have for making meals faster and easier?
