One of my stand-byes is a dish I got from my mom called fricassee. According to the webs, a fricassee is a dish made up of white meat, which is stewed in a thick sauce, sometimes with vegetables. There are numerous variations, but mine is one of those blue-collar low-income heart-warmer that anybody can dish out with a minimum of fuss in a very short time, and it requires a single cooking vessel, so the cleanup is minimal as well.
Once prepared this is a dish that will be easy to portion and freeze, a useful thing to have kicking around in your freezer when you need a quick and easy lunch. If you really need some side dish, especially in the summer, all I'd add to that is a green salad. Keep it simple, but make the simple extraordinary!
