For the gravy: 

Packet method- Well, the quickest and easiest way to make your gravy may not be considered homemade, but at least it doesn’t come from a can-   mix one chicken gravy packet into 1 cup of water, whisk well and microwave on High for 2 minutes. This will bring the liquid to a boil.  Mix, then let sit.  Will thicken upon standing. 

Bouillon cube-  This is quick also, but I think it can be too salty. Usually I make my own gravy from pan drippings, this recipe just doesn’t create enough to do that.   Dissolve the cube into 1 cup of water, heat on High in the microwave for about 2 minutes.  Mix the flour into 1 tablespoon of water to create a slurry then add it to the chicken bouillon.  Mix well, heat on high for 1 minute, mix, then let sit.  Will thicken upon standing.

Easy Quick Rise Dinner Rolls in One Hour

This is the quickest and easiest yeast roll I have ever made. No more thinking ahead the day before or hours prior to rise dough.  You can enjoy fresh, soft, fluffy dinner rolls in just an hour following this recipe. Using rapid rise yeast helps, but also this style roll does not require a long rise time.  I made them buttered, you can try experimenting with different herb toppings or add a touch more sugar and a little honey to turn them into Hawaiian rolls!

What you need:

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Envelope of Rapid Rise Yeast
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
¾ teaspoons salt
1 cup water
6 Tablespoons Butter, divided into 2 Tablespoons each
Sea Salt and garlic Seasoning for the top if you wish

What to do:

Preheat the oven to 400º, reduce to 375º when you put them in the oven.

Mix the yeast, sugar and salt and 1 cup of flour in a large bowl.

Warm the oil, water and 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave on 1 minute. Liquid should be warm , not hot to the touch. Add  to the flour mixture. Mix by hand for about until well combined.

Add ½ cup flour and continue to mix.  Flour your counter top, dump the dough onto the counter, add more flour until dough is no longer sticky, but a workable soft dough.

Knead for about 5-8 minutes.


Grease a glass pie plate or pan of your choice, separate into equal parts, roll into a ball and set them spaced about 2 inches. Let rise an additional 20 minutes. Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter, bake on 375º for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Brush with remaining butter. Salt or garlic if desired.

Sweet & Spicy Chicken with Rice can also be made ahead of time and frozen! 

What you need: 

1 1/2 pounds cooked chicken (or use 1 bag of Tyson Grilled & Ready fully cooked chicken strips)
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 red bell pepper- sliced in 1/4 inch strips
1/2 yellow bell pepper- sliced in 1/4 inch strips
1 medium carrot- julienned 
(Photo Courtesy- How To Julienne Carrots
1 jar of Frank’s RedHot Sweet Chili Sauce 
1 cup of uncooked white rice
2 cups of water

What to do:

In a large skillet on medium high, add the olive oil , then heat the chicken for about 3 minutes.

Add the carrots & peppers, stir, cook for about a minute.

Add the rice, water and 1/2 the bottle of Franks Sweet Chili Sauce. Mix.

Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, cover and cook for about 15 minutes.  

TIP*  Cooking white rice is easy if you do this one thing….  DO NOT take the lid off during the cooking process. White rice is usually cooked by steaming. Removing the cover let’s out the steam. You may have some sticking on the bottom of your pan, but that is just part of it and better than uncooked or mushy rice. 

Top with the remaining Sweet Chili sauce and serve!
