Instructions
  1. Place the chicken in the slow cooker, then add the onion, then pour the soup in, season with salt and pepper to your liking. Cover and cook on Low setting for 7 to 8 hours or on High setting for 3-4 hours.
  2. When the cooking time is done, open the pot and using 2 forks, break up the chicken, it will fall right apart, then add in the corn, cooked rice, Italian seasoning, and chicken stock powder, give it a good stir, this will break up the chicken a bit more, then stir in the cheese. Cover and let cook for another 15-30 minutes. Serve as is or with a side.
Recipe Notes

Chicken will cost about 40-50 Baht for 4 breasts. The cheese will run about 90 Baht if you use half a 250 gram block and shred yourself. For 4 servings, this is about $1.05 per serving, make the soup shortcut additional savings.

  1. Cut the eggs in half, Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Place the egg yolks into a bowl and mash with a fork, set aside. Chop the egg whites into small pieces into another bowl, and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan set over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually mix in the milk and chicken bouillon so that no lumps form and stir constantly until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens, reduce heat, add the egg yolks and mix until dissolved into the sauce. Stir in egg whites. Serve over toast and season with salt and white pepper.
Recipe Notes

Eggs come in 6 packs, 10 packs, 15 packs, and 30 packs, and prices vary as well. For this recipe I am just going to use 77 Baht for a 15 pack of eggs. For 6 servings, this is about 38 cents per serving. Great value.

I think a good variant would be to add cooked chopped bacon or cooked and crumbled sausage to the sauce.

  1. In a large pot, add the water, rice, veggies, and stock powder, for 20 minutes, or until rice is cooked. Add the turkey (or chicken), the soup, basil, and pepper to your liking then brink to a boil again, then simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Chicken will cost between 67 and 84 Baht/kilo (breasts, thighs). No idea on the cost of turkey yet. I have found a source for local raised, free range turkeys, cost coming soon. Make the condensed soup your self for great savings on that. I will estimate this using thighs at 84 Baht/kilo and 6 servings. This is about 42 cents per serving. Excellent value.

If you are going to boil the chicken and not use roasted, boil the chicken with the rice and veggies, skin on and bone if possible, and omit the powdered stock. When the chicken is cooked through, remove from the water, shred and return to the pot. Easy!

This is a old school classic than many US Armed Forces will remember. Served over toast traditionally, but may be served over biscuits, hash browns, or even pasta. Add a couple of fried eggs on top for a hearty breakfast or dinner. I have not had this since 2005, I made this last night on 22 Sep 2016 and was pleasantly surprised, excellent taste, easy to put together.

Instructions
  1. The fat from the ground beef adds flavor to this, do not drain that off. However, if you use minced pork, drain the fat or this will not work out well.
  2. Heat a large non stick pan over medium high heat, add the ground beef, chicken bouillon, garlic powder, black pepper, and onion powder. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 7-10 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour and stir constantly for 2-3 minutes, add the milk and continue stirring and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and add a little bit of mace or nutmeg, the flavor will be correct when you just start to taste the mace or nutmeg. Then simmer for about 5 minutes to thicken, it will thicken fast. Serve over toast, biscuits, hash browns, or even pasta. Top with a few fried eggs for a complete and filling meal.
Recipe Notes

Ground beef would cost about 150 Baht/500 grams, minced pork runs about 70 Baht/500 grams. For beef, this is about $1.10 per serving for 4 servings, if using pork, this is about 52 cents per serving.

Variants. Add a can of stewed whole tomatoes and break them up with the spatula, this makes Red SOS (in US Armed Forces, this would be called Train Wreck). Replace the minced beef (or pork) with chipped beef for Creamed Beef. Another option is to omit the beef and make the white sauce and then use a can or two of drained tuna.

For leftovers, stuff some bell peppers, top with cheese, and bake in a 180 C oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

Instructions
  1. Chop the half chicken and blood. If you do not have a half chicken, use thighs, legs, breasts, chopped into smaller pieces.
  2. Peel the winter melon, chop into large pieces, soak in some water for a few minutes then drain. If it has small seeds that is ok, if the seeds are large, remove them.
  3. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and add the smashed scallions and garlic.
  4. After it is boiling, add chicken pieces and chicken stock powder.
  5. When cooked through, about 10-12 minutes, add the chicken blood. Continue to boil until the blood is cooked through about 5-10 minutes.
  6. When the blood is cooked, add the winter melon and reduce heat to a simmer to heat the melon through. When melon is tender, remove from heat and serve with a bowl of rice.
Recipe Notes

Chicken would run about 100 to 140 Baht for about 1 kilo of chicken. Blood and melon, very cheap. This is about 70 cents per meal for 6 people, even less for 8 people. Nutritious and healthy.

Me, I like this name, it is what you do with a slow cooker, load it up and let it cook, slow cooker meals are normally not the most attractive dishes. Not a attractive name but this sounds really good! This is a load the slow cooker and forget meal, for about 4 to 6 hours anyways. Think Kielbasa (that would be Spicy Smoked Pork Sausage in Makro), regular pork sausage (Bangers), Italian sausage, and chicken sausage. If you are making the sausage, think meatballs! This is a rewrite from what I seen to make it less processed.

Instructions
  1. Add to the slow cooker pot in this order, yard beans, potatoes, sausage, onion. Add water to just cover over the potatoes. add chicken stock powder and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Note for the sausage, Thai Kielbasa is a spicy (mild) smoked pork sausage, I have had this a number of times and it is excellent. I think pork sausage (Bangers) would also work well but leave a links until cooked. Italian, pork, or chicken sausage, homemade and in bulk, rolled into meatballs would be ideal as well.
  3. Cover, and no peeking, for 4-6 hours on High setting. At the 4 hour mark, quickly check the potatoes for being tender and done and sausage (regardless of type used) for the liquid to run clear. Stir and serve with a green salad.
Recipe Notes

Sausages are not a show stopper, if you buy sausage from Makro, perfectly acceptable, a 8 pack of bangers is about 250 Baht, this recipe calls for 2, if you buy the Spicy Smoked Pork
Sausage (very muck like Kielbasa) that is about 200 Baht for 8 sausages. If you get the Sausage Scraps pack (still Spicy Smoked) these can be chili sausages, garlic sausages, etc, and would be a great option, this is only about 180 Baht for a pack about 1 kilo. Now, if you make the sausage yourself in bulk, either pork, Italian, or chicken, roll into meatballs (use an egg or two for a binder) and add to the pot, these would be excellent. Regardless of what you use, this is easily under $1 per serving.

  1. Take the chicken wing drumets and cut each in half with a cleaver.
  2. Pinch off the stem end if you wish and place chilis in a mortar, light smash the chilis just a few times, you are NOT making chili paste, just light smashed chilis.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan to medium heat and add the chicken pieces, chilis, garlic, pinch of salt to taste, pinch of chicken stock powder. Add a bit of water, maybe 2 tablespoons, and stir everything together and let it simmer until chicken is cooked through, maybe 10 minutes, most of the water should be cook off at this point.
  4. Add the basil and stir together, cook for about 2-3 minutes until the basil is good and wilted. Serve over rice.
Recipe Notes

Chicken wing drumets (also called chicken wing sticks) runs about 80 Baht/kilo, this dish would cost about 40 Baht, well under $1 per person per meal, easily 4 meals.

The basil and chilis come fresh from our yard.

Instructions
  1. Whisk together in a microwave safe glass container no less that 1 qt in size. Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes until very thick, stopping to whisk mixture after each minute. Microwave ovens vary wildly so it may take longer in yours. Just keep cooking and whisking every so often until it gets thick. Add chopped chicken.
  2. Alternatively, you may pour whisked mixture (see notes) into a saucepan or skillet and cook on medium low on top of the stove until thickened. If you are unfortunate enough to find lumps in your soup, pour it through a strainer. Add finely chopped chicken.
Recipe Notes

You can use fresh milk instead of evaporated (never sweetened condensed milk), but it will not hold up to prolonged cooking or freezing like the evaporated milk does.

If you choose to make this on the stove, I recommend you mix it in a blender first, OR plan to push it through a strainer when it has been cooked. The chicken base doesn't seem to dissolve as readily as it does in the microwave so blending it first results in a creamier product.

Be advised that microwave ovens vary wildly. If your soup doesn't thicken after 3 minutes, keep cooking and stirring every minute until it does.

Most recipes will just call for a can of condensed soup, some recipes (or if you just want to make the soup by itself) call for 1 can of water. One can equals 1 1/4 cups of water. But as a healthier alternative to using water, try using whey if you recently made cottage cheese, or water used to boil potatoes. Milk can also be used in place of water to make a creamier soup.
