My husband and I were trying to figure out how to eat cheaper and healthier while on the road.
So, we bought a refrigerator. We keep both it and our cabinet stocked mostly with items we can cook right on the truck. I have been cooking hot, hearty meals almost every night with little effort. The thing to think about when doing this, is planning ahead. – We plan our meals ahead of time, and hit Wal*Mart once a week. I do a lot of the cooking in our Burton stove – which you can find in most Pilot’s.
Tonight, I made a chicken casserole. It took only a few minutes to prepare and cooked for about two hours.
* I think cooking like this could also be done by a solo driver, as he/she could prepare the food at a truck/rest stop, and cook while they drive. Ok, back to the chicken casserole…*
6 Chicken Tenders – Uncooked
1 Can – Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Can – Stove Top Stuffing Mix (I buy the can so I can make as much or little as I want)
1/4 Cup – Water
Pour 1 can Cream of Chicken soup into the bottom of an aluminum pan. Add about 1/4 cup of water, stir together, and add tenders. In a separate bowl, add stuffing and mix with just enough water to moisten. Pour this mixture over the chicken and soup. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cover with foil and let it cook for about two hours. – I’m tellin’ you, I literally prepared this in minutes! The Burton stove does the work! I served mine with green beans and mashed potatoes. Hope this has been helpful – ’cause it sure was yummy!
