Chicken & Salsa Pot Pies + Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats

When you’ve got a busy night planned and are crunched for time, sometimes it’s hard to get a decent meal on the dinner table. We have plenty of nights like this with my youngest son playing sports almost all year round. Instead of heading to a drive thru or ordering takeout, I rely on pre-made prepared meals to get us through the crazy nights.

The Chicken & Salsa Pot Pies from Omaha Steaks are perfect for these occasions. They are incredibly delicious and are ready in no time. It’s a Mexican version of a chicken pot pie, two of my all-time favorite things. A definite comfort food meal with a little added kick from the salsa.

My oldest son is a college student, and I found that these pot pies are perfect for him too. Since they can be prepared in the microwave, there is no need for an oven! In less than five minutes he and his roommates can have a hot, delicious meal, no takeout needed.

I also created an easy dessert for them to have along with their pot pie. It’s a no bake dessert so again, no need for an oven. My kids and their friends couldn’t get enough of these delicious crispy chocolate peanut butter treats. I mean, what’s better than chocolate and peanut butter together? Kids of all ages, and adults too, will go crazy for them! And even better, their ready in no time at all.
