Quick simple meals, that's all we ask.  Really.  Our lives are busy enough without having to stop and make long drawn out dishes to sit and enjoy.  It's funny.  When it was just me, I used to make these types of meals all the time.  Infact, I would make several and freeze some of them to have for later.  I'm not sure why I stopped since they are quick and easy.  The entire meal is in one packet.  We also make these when we go camping (actually I cut everything up before we leave, toss the chicken in the seasoning mix and then wrap them when we get there).  If you take these camping and you don't think you will have them on the first night, dice up the chicken, toss it in the seasoning and then freeze the chicken in proportioned baggies. Toss them into your ice chest and they should be good to go in a day or so..  You can also make this with beef (cut up sirloin or hamburger meat) or fish.  Try a variety of different vegetables or instead of using potato, use sweet potato or yams.  Serve with fresh fruit and you have a complete meal.

I found these beauties in the organic section. The purple has a unique taste, but that could have just been me. I thoroughly enjoyed them!
