"I love slow-cooked green beans, but they take hours to prepare.  This recipe is my simplified and quick version that combines canned green beans and bacon bits into a delicious and easy side dish."
2 Tablespoons butter
1-(14.5 ounce) can of cut green beans, drained
1/4 cup Hormel real bacon bits (from 3 ounce jar)*
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter.  Add drained green beans, bacon bits and seasonings.  Simmer for 10 minutes. 
*The bacon bits can be found on the condiment and salad dressing aisle in the grocery store.

Chicken 'n Noodles

"This is one of the easiest recipes that my Mom has taught me.  Growing up it was one of my sister's very favorite dinners.  Of course when my Mom made this dinner for us she fried the chicken, but I have simplified it by purchasing fried chicken from my local grocery store deli.  It literally takes minutes to put this delicious dinner on the table." 
Deli fried chicken
6 ounces of egg noodles (1/2 of a 12 ounce package), prepared according to package directions and drained
1 (10-3/4 ounce) can of cream of mushroom soup
2 Tablespoons of milk
salt & pepper, to taste
 In a large saucepan, combine prepared egg noodles, cream of mushroom soup, milk and salt and pepper.  Mix well and heat through.  Serve alongside deli chicken.  ENJOY!
