2 chicken breasts... 4 adults! :/

So super LAST minute (thanks DH ) and I'm needing to feed a total of 4 adults and 1 teenager... I only have 2 chicken breasts and some ground beef, ONE green bell pepper and some onions... a couple of roma tomatoes too... what in the world am I supposed to cook?! lol

I was thinking dirty rice to make things stretch... and I need to use up that chicken somehow... any ideas mamas??

Mexican chicken casserole! Rice, chicken (cooked, cubed), cream of whatever soup, tomato, pepper, onion, corn, shredded cheese! Bake in the oven, serve with sour cream or salsa!

Chicken n rice?

Chicken and Rice:
1 cup rice
2.5 cups hot water
1/2 cup chopped celery *You can omit this*
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup (can use cream of celery if like more celery taste)
1lb chicken breasts- cube up and mix it all together
1 package dry onion soup mix * it would be fine with out this probably too*
paprika

Mix all together, toss in 9x13 pan 375* for 1.5 hrs (less if using instant rice).

Fried Rice with strips of chicken? You could use the bell pepper and the onion if you had some rice and an egg or two.

Or tacos/fajitas with your choice of chicken or ground beef filling?

Maybe some homemade BBQ chicken pizzas- use the tomatoes and peppers to add some interest to the toppings.

Thanks for all your help mamas! I'm jotting these down for next week!

I ended up halving the chicken breasts (woohoo, smooth move!) and making cajun chicken breasts with onions and peppers, served with dirty rice... scrumdilyumptious! (and now I want to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
