Recipe for meals with 5 or less ingredients ???

ANY and all suggestions are appreicated.
I like cooking but the less ingredients usually means less mistake and less time.
Any suggestions are appreicated- I would really like to cook dinner for hubby tonight, since he is in the middle of some tough decesions regarding work and i want him to have a relaxing night......
Thanks everyone!

in a casserole dish, cut up some chicken, enough for the two of you, and add 1 can cream of mushroom-or cream of celery, cream of chicken, or any other cream soup-add a can of milk (fat-free, skim, whole, whatever), and a cup of rice (brown rice works well, too). also add i cup water. cover and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour at 350-375. makes a nutritious meal with very little fuss! i would suggest using a brand other than campbell's for the soup, though, because their sodium levels are very high!

Pad Thai -
buy the pad thai noodles at the grocery store. They need to soak in water for about 25 minutes, I think. It says on the package. So put them in a bowl of water on the counter.

Then cut up a chicken breast or two into cubes, and throw them in a pan (spray the pan with PAM first). After the chicken is mostly cooked, add some sliced mushrooms and some sprouts or water chestnuts if you want. Then, after they've cooked the desired amount, add the noodles to the pan, and add some peanut sauce or sweet and sour sauce, and mix until it's all hot.

Marinate 2 chicken breasts in teriyaki sauce, and put them on the grill for 20 minutes at medium heat. Flip halfway through.

At the same time, steam some veggies, any kind.

Stir fry is my fall back dish. I buy a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies and add a protein (tofu, chicken breast, fish, whatever). Sometimes I add in cooked pasta noodles too - they're great when they get a bit browned up and crispy! Add a nice stir fry sauce, like a lemon ginger or sesame orange, for example.

I just made this tonight and it was fabulous!

3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts - put in baking dish
1 T lemon juice squeezed on each breast
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 c red pepper, small dice - spread on top
1/2 c feta cheese - crumble on top
Handful of parsley on top

Bake in 350 F oven for 35 minutes. The flavor is outrageous good and this can be prepared ahead of time and frozen until ready to use. Just thaw before cooking.

I have a 4 ingredient cookbook, I lent it to a friend so I don't know specifics but I'm fairly sure the name is "4 ingredient cookbook" or something similar to that. Happy cooking!
