Spicy Skillet Supper!

Well, here I am, 9am on Saturday morning sitting in my sisters classroom while she is in a class for her Masters degree.  I have rearranged the stuff on her walls.  Being an unteacher most of my life, she knows I will theme, decorate, organize, and freshen up her room and be in heaven.  By "unteacher" I mean I have taught music for several years and regular classroom substitute almost fulltime for several years, but have no teaching degree.  I am the teacher that wasn't.  That is an entirely different blog.  So I am taking a break to get this recipe down for you.  Well that, AND I am tired and out of idea's for the moment!  Super hero's, fall tree's, butterflies, Huskers, and educational am I supposed to meld THAT into ONE classroom theme.  I know, a different one on each wall.  YES!  She totally owes me for this one! :)  I feel a bit of a cold relapse today.  Maybe I am just tired, but maybe it really IS doctor time.  I HATE doctor offices.  Doctors mean only one thing to me........NEEDLES and scary nurses.  Sorry, off topic a bit........

Anyway, I have had some requests for recipes to feed big families and families with big eaters.  Last night when I decided what I was making for dinner, I was reminded of how much my son loved this meal and that I had no made it for years.  It is easy to change up, so I am going to write it in a way you can choose your options.   You can make this spicy or not. 
You will need:
1 can tomato soup
1 can of ro-tel (mild, medium, or hot)
1 clove of minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter

Pick 2 proteins  (I use boneless chicken breasts or thighs, and Italian sausage)
Chicken (boneless or bone in remember bone IN will need a bit longer to cook)3-4 pieces
Boneless Pork Chops 2-3
Italian Sausages 3-4
Polish Sausages 3-4
Smoked Sausages 3-4

In a large skillet add oil and butter and minced garlic.  Saute for a minute without letting the garlic burn.  Add proteins, and brown on all sides on high heat.  Combine soup and ro-tel in a bowl.  When all meat is brown pour mixture over it and immediately lower heat to medium and cover.  Cook for 25-30 minutes.

I serve this with yellow rice or saffron rice.  Its delicous, you can satisfy everyone with 2 meats.   

Enjoy this delicious dish!
