One-Pot Meal with Rotisserie Chicken Recipe with Noodles
Have you ever been in a situation where you know guests are coming the next night for a casual meal, and you don’t know what to make? With fall and soup season here, I have been resorting to one-pot meals, such as today’s Rotisserie Chicken Recipe with Noodles. Easy, peasy!
I say forget about worrying about the salads, side dishes, and main dishes, especially for week-night entertaining.
Dump your favorite ingredients into ONE POT and you’re golden! (Don’t you just love the vibrance of fresh vegetables, especially the darker root veggies?)
Tips for making a ONE-POT meal:
1. Invite 6-16 people for dinner. Invite people that you know love homemade and casual meals.
2. Delegate by asking your friends to bring crunchy bread and drinks! Beer and wine are great to serve, but water is also an excellent choice, and so healthy for a casual meal.
3. If you’re short of soup bowls, ask guests to bring their own, and you’ll provide the silverware!
4. If a small group, set the table and make the ONE POT the centerpiece for the table. If a larger group, gather the bowls and utensils by the stove and let guests serve themselves. Place your favorite dish towel on the table in place of a trivet, and don’t forget the ladle!
It’s really that easy. I’ve made one-pot meals such as soups, chills, and even dumplings. People love simple cooking and the essence of homemade. It’s lovely, happy, warm, cozy, and it makes people around your table feel nurtured and good.
Next time you’re at loss for what to make your guests, I hope you try my recipe today. Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup.
