1. Half-Hour Chicken Gumbo

Prep: 30 minutes
Total: 30 mintues

Rely on rotisserie chicken, smoked spicy sausage, and frozen okra from the store to stack up flavors in our quick rendition of a classic Cajun stew.


Serves 4.

3 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 red bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 package (10 ounces) frozen cut okra
8 ounces smoked (precooked) andouille sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced 1 inch thick
1 rotisserie chicken (about 2 1/2 pounds), skin and bones removed, meat shredded (about 4 cups)
Store-bought or homemade cornbread, for serving (optional)


In a 5-quart Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil over medium. Add flour, and cook, whisking constantly, until pale golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in bell peppers, onion, garlic, and oregano; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
Add 4 cups water; stir in okra and sausage. Bring to a boil. Stir in shredded chicken, and warm through, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; if desired, serve with cornbread.

2. Hash Brown Frittata

Scrambling for supper? Mix the eggs and potatoes in one easy skillet dish and you're ready to announce, "Dinner's ready!"

Prep Time: 35 min
Total Time: 35 min
Makes: 4 servings

2 cups refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes
1 can (11 ounces) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained
1 teaspoon onion salt
4 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Serve with... Apple-Grapefruit Salad
Total Time: 20 min

1. Mix potatoes, corn and onion salt. Spray 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Pack potato mixture firmly into skillet, leaving 1/2-inch space around edge. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook uncovered about 10 minutes or until bottom starts to brown.
2. Meanwhile, mix eggs, milk, marjoram and pepper sauce. Pour egg mixture over potato mixture. Cook uncovered over medium-low heat. As mixture begins to set on bottom and side, gently lift cooked portions with spatula so that thin, uncooked portion can flow to bottom. Avoid constant stirring. Cook about 5 minutes or until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist. Sprinkle with cheese.
3. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook about 10 minutes or until center is set and cheese is bubbly. Loosen bottom of frittata with spatula. Cut frittata into 4 wedges.
