Month 2 of my Pantry Challenge & recipes

Tonight for dinner we had Chicken Stew as I call it. All from the pantry except for the chicken (did not want to have to butcher a hen for dinner....lol. So I let Tyson do the dirty work!)
I sliced up a bunch of celery, carrots, onion and put them in some olive oil and sauteed them.
Dumped those into the crockpot with a 32 oz container of NO SALT GF chicken broth,
cut up the chicken breasts (3 of them) added those to the crockpot,
sprinkled in some cumin (1/2 tsp or so),
1 tsp of poultry seasoning,
1/2 tsp of Kitchen Bouquet,
1/2 tsp of Marjoram.
A can of black beans drained and rinsed 
a large can of green beans (I think around 30 oz or so?) drained and rinsed.
I cooked that on high for an hour and then on low for about 3 hours. But you could put it on low all day and just leave it. I had some brown rice in the fridge leftover so I tossed that in about the last hour. It was a hit!!



Moe's Gluten Free/Dairy Free Chicken Stew


A fine meal like this was not be complete without a wonderful dessert!!


Moe's Gluten Free/Dairy Free Peanut Butter Truffle Brownie

1 box of Gluten Free Hodgson Mill Brownie Mix (use regular brownie mix if you can eat wheat  :)
I used 2 eggs to make the cake like brownies and followed the recipe on the box.
Then to make the peanut butter filling (use Sunbutter if you have allergies to peanut butter)

Filling
1/2 cup Fleischmann's salt free margarine (it's dairy free too!), softened (or use real butter)
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons Almond/soy or dairy milk (I added a bit more to make it more creamy)
Blend with mixer until creamy. Then I cut the brownie in 1/2 with a knife, layed on the filling and then put the top of the brownie on. It's 1/2 gone already! lol
