Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Voiced Over Fast Chicken & Peas

Posted by 8 years ago 15 Comments

How do I say this? Let’s see.

My video has no audio. That’s right ladies and gentleman, my computer crashed while rendering the video and unfortunately the audio track was corrupted. Fortunately the actual video was intact. I was slightly upset as I do these videos in “real time” with no prep, no editing and no second takes (not that you couldn’t tell) ;~P

Sooo what so I do?

I have no other choice but to roll with it. (Or not post it but that would be no fun) So I voiced it over. It’s not a great but at least I can get my idea out there and meet my goal of posting a video.


I’m leaving this idea as just an idea and not calculating nutritional information. I estimate my points at 6 a servings with 4 servings.

    It is always good to remember that if you have a well stocked pantry you can make fast healthy meals on the fly. Thanks. My daughter missed Ryan. Reply

    Roni! I'm sorry I've been commenting like crazy lately. And I just realized there is another Allison who comments, so I'm going to be 'Allison K' now :P Anyway! I love these 'one pot' pasta dish ideas. They are super comforting. I'm normally more inclined to use wilted leafy greens.. but tonight I'm using frozen peas in your Beef-a-Roni dish! I am SO looking forward to it! Thanks, yet again, for another genius idea! :D Reply

    Excellent job making lemonade out of lemons! I LOVE frozen peas too! My husband won't eat peas, but I'm guessing he grew up on the canned variety. I might have to sneak some in our next dish! Thanks for the great ideas - ALWAYS!!! Reply

    Hi Roni, Despite not being a toddler, I share the toddlers love of chocolate milk. You have mentioned it in a few videos including this one. I was wondering how and what brand chocolate milk you use? Most seem filled with sugar. Thanks! Reply

    Kathy - I use mostly use 8th continent light ( It only has 2 more grams of sugar then regular skim milk and I actually dilute it with cows milk to stretch it further as I find it sweet. Hope that helps! Reply

    Hey Roni! This is so funny -- I actually make something almost exactly like this regularly. My mom used to make it for me as a child because I do not like actual casseroles, but it was the "insides" of it which is fine. The only thing I do differently may help with your "thick" issue (when you mentioned using more water). I make the chicken the same way you do (with garlic and onions). I drain the pasta at that point. I then put the soup and a splash of skim milk (I realize a "splash" is not that helpful of a measurement -- it's probably about 2 tablespoons) back into the pot, add the noodles, then the peas, then the chicken.
