When we lived in Southern California, I LOVED El Pollo Loco. I wish someone would open one here.

All these arsenic/poison posts make me feel lucky to have a MIL I like. LOL

Good idea! I was gonna suggest tuna. Not the canned stuff but a nice big Ahi fillet. It's the steak of the sea. LOL

I have had to learn how to cook midwestern for them. Oooh they like it when I make ribs...but it is usually warmer when I do that.
Mmmmm... sushi & miso soup... can I come for dinner?

What about barbecuing a salmon filet and a beef filet..so they can choose? It only takes a little time..and then whip up some potatoes to go with it or something?

Me, too. Actually, there aren't many cooks in DH's family. So they're all always extremely appreciative and complimentary toward anybody who does cook.

I have a marinated flank steak recipe that I make for company that everybody loves...and it's easy to boot. You can either do it in the broiler or on the grill. It's a hit every time.

Awww...my MIL and I get along great, which is good since she lives just up the road!

The easiest thing I can think of is barbequed chicken breasts. I have a crock pot but don't use it, so I just put them in a skillet with a lid on low heat and cover each with bbq sauce (can also use italian dressing or one of the marinades...the garlic and herb is VERY good and not expensive). Flip them every 15minutes or so and keep pouring more sauce on them until they are basically boiling in the sauce or dressing. It takes a little over an hour to get them done, but they fall apart! When they are about 3/4 done, throw a few steaks with lots of garlic salt and pepper on the broiler and stick them in the oven. They won't take long to get done. For the sides, if you don't know what they prefer have a little bit of everything. A pasta side dish (like Pasta-Roni), mashed potatoes, broccoli, green beans, rolls, whatever. Actually, if you want broccoli here is a great broccoli casserole I made for Thanksgiving and everyone LOVED it! My MIL even asked me for the receipe for Christmas dinner and it is so easy!

Good luck! I'm sure they will love whatever you make!

my family makes a chicken dish that is SOOOO Easy and really really delisious!! In fact I just made it last night for supper!

about 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
(you can use more or less to make a bigger or smaller dish)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
(I like the Camples chicken with herbs)
1 big tub of sour cream
(you can use the fat free and it still tastes wonderful!)
Poppy seeds (to taste) but you can leave these out if you don't have them
Ritz crackers and melted butter

Boil the chicken and cut into bite sized pieces
mix the sour cream, cream of chicken soup, the cut up (cooked) Chicken and poppy seeds (if using them)
Pour into a casserole dish
Cover top with the crushed crackers mixed with the melted butter
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes--or until everything is bubbly

serve it with rice and a green veggie

couldn't be easier!
