Speedy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas
Quick and filling enchiladas received the highest marks from Christina. "These are delicious. I like everything about them--the
peppers, the sauce, and the meat." Get creative and substitute lean ground beef, pulled pork, or black beans for the chicken.Recipe: Speedy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas
Quick Chicken and Dumplings
This creamy one-dish meal cuts the prep time in half by using flour tortillas instead of homemade dumplings. The recipe received
the highest marks from all three judges, with Trent commenting that "everything was cooked just right."Recipe: Quick Chicken and Dumplings
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Pizza slathered with barbecue sauce was a pleasant surprise for Trent. "I'm not usually a big fan of barbecue, but this is
my favorite!" he said. Christina agreed that she liked the barbecue's sauce, but prefers traditional tomato sauce. Feel free
to use your child's favorite sauce when making this pizza.Recipe: BBQ Chicken Pizza
