Anything with "easy" in the title of a recipe catches my eye. Mama's are too busy to be slaving over a stove for hours at a time! Serve over rice and a green veggie for a complete meal. Hope your family enjoys.. happy eating y'all!!

I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand. W/C means with coupon.
