Chicken Terriyaki

We tried another great new recipe tonight!

1-1.5 pounds of chicken sliced or cubed
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup terriyaki or soy sauce (I used about half of each)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp minced garlic

Place chicken in bottom of bean pot. Remember that chicken must be thawed so you don't break your bean pot. Mix the other ingredients together and pour over chicken. Place lid on bean pot and microwave for 20 minutes.

You can easily add more chicken to the recipe as there is plenty of juice. We served it over fried rice (it was a mix) and everyone LOVED it!

Chili Soup

Chili Soup  is a major favorite around this house. We even eat it in the summer because it is such a good one!

1 pound hamburger browned in bean pot first
30 oz diced tomatoes
30 oz chili beans in sauce
15 oz kidney beans drained
12 oz can of V8 juice
1 can tomato soup
1 tsp chili powder (add more if you like it spicier!)
1 tsp minced garlic

Mix all ingredients and microwave for 20 minutes! We always enjoy it with shredded cheese and sour cream on top!
