Recipe Your Family Begs You to Cook:  Chicken casserole.  It's so simple and can be made after a long day at the office - like we don't know what that is like. Here's the recipe:
3 lb of boneless chicken breast - in cube size bites.
Brown in a fry pan.
Add one large can of cream of mushroom soup and a bag of frozen mixed veggies. 
Heat thoroughly.
Boil a bag of bow tie or elbow macaroni until tender.
Mix the chicken mixture into the noodles - and put into a lasagna sized pan.
Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top and bake at 350 until brown.
Spoon onto a plate and serve with garlic bread and a salad!
