Soul Food Saturday

Now that the kids are busy in school and our work schedules seem to run together with our daily activities; we are on the look out for ways to let our grocery store help us out. Not to mention the holiday rush is around the corner! Yep, I said it out loud. Take the help folks! Those bags of precut bagged salads and roasted meats save time! I know what you’re all thinking though, Mrs. Soul Food that is so boring! Fear not, this idea is fun, fresh, and flavorful! And even better than that it’s really quick! Grab a fork, this one is good enough to eat out of the pot.
Rotisserie Chicken 
Garden Veggie Stir Fry
 1 tbs. olive oil
8 oz. sliced baby Bella mushrooms
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 c. leek, green part, chopped
1 whole rotisserie chicken, skin and bones removed, chopped
1 bag broccoli slaw salad mix (no dressing)
2 Anaheim chilies, chopped finely
3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt to taste
In a heated large skillet add oil, leeks, mushrooms, chilies, garlic, and salt to taste. Sauté, until veggies have softened, stirring often. Add slaw mix, tomatoes, and additional sprinkle of salt to taste. Stir to combine. Allow veggies to wilt slightly and warm through.
Add chicken and check for seasoning. Add additional salt if desired. Stir to combine, allow chicken to warm through, check once more for seasoning and add any additions if necessary.
Can be served with rice, warm tortillas or alone as a one pot wonder. Enjoy!
