This is my first time on this board. My DH does a lot of grilling and grills enough meat for the week. He cooks most of our meals.
I am a recipe person. One of my favorite easy recipes is for a one pot chicken stew. Wish I had this when I was in college. Easy with common ingredients... The second recipe is for a mexican chicken stew. It is the time of year for stews and they are easy.
