    I have a GREAT chicken casserole :
    6 chicken breasts cooked and cubed (sometimes I just use 3 or 4)
    one can of campbells cream of chicken soup
    1.5 cups of chicken stock
    1/2 cup chopped white sweet onion
    1.5 cups of (pre-boiled) thin egg noodles
    1 cup of Hellmans Mayo (it should be hellmans and NOT LIGHT)
    1.5 cups of frozen peas
    salt and pepper (to taste)

    I serve it with toasted sliced almonds and its SO yummy. I've asked my Mom to make it for me for you my birthday this weekend! Hope it works out for all that try it!

    My mom used to always make this, and it's still a family favourite. This is the best recipe I have ever tried!


    Shepard's Pie

    1-2 lbs of ground beef, depending on how much meat you want
    chopped onions (about 1/2-1 large onion)
    fry it up until meat is brown.
    Add
    Beef Bovril
    Oregano
    Thyme
    Basil
    Rosemary

    Make mashed potatoes, as much as you want.

    Layer:
    Meat on the bottom
    Creamed Corn, about 2-3 cans, enough to cover
    Then the mashed potatoes.

    Put salt, pepper and a couple spoonfuls of butter or margarine on top of the whole thing
    Put in the oven at about 375F until the creamed corn comes bubbling up around the sides. Then put on broil until the top is browned.

    Making this today

    Hache (traditional Dutch meal!)

    2 lbs. stew meat or round steak cut into 1" cubes
    2 Tbls. cooking oil/bacon grease, more if needed
    4 medium onions, chopped
    2 Tbls. all-purpose flour
    2 Tbls. vinegar
    2 bay leaves
    5 cloves, broken, or 1/2 teas. powdered cloves
    2 teas. salt
    1 Tbls. Worcestershire sauce
    2 cups. hot water, more if needed
    4 to 6 large boiled potatoes, halved
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

    Creamy Sauce Pasta

    Use 1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup
    and 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup as the sauce.

    Add, chicken, and bacon and veggies to the sauce.
    Mix with cooked pasta. Season to your liking. This sounds no so good, but it's a great quick meal. you don't have to add anything if you don't want, it's great on it's own. Oh, BTW don't add the milk like the can of soup says so, that makes it too watered down and bland!

    I JUST made this for supper and it's a variation on an ol' tried-and-true recipe we've done for years.

    4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    2 tbsp olive oil
    garlic (we've used fresh/chopped approx. two cloves, pre-chopped 1/2 tsp or if desperate, garlic powder) - use as much as you want/like as garlic is a personal preference.
    1/2 onion
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1 cup of water

    rice (whatever kind/amount you want/need for your family - I'm lazy so I use minute rice for 6 servings)

    *variation* 1 bottle of pineapple sauce
    *variation* sauteed/steamed vegetables of choice

    Use a non-stick pan and heat olive oil on med-high. Add garlic and onion and sautee until clear. Place chicken breasts in pan and sprinkle salt and pepper on exposed side. Cook 8-10 minutes until nicely browned on first side, then turn. Sprinkle salt and pepper on exposed side and cook another 8-10 minutes until nicely browned. Turn again.

    Add water, soy sauce and lemon juice to pan and reduce heat to a low simmer. Supervise as needed, turning once, for approximately 20 minutes or until cooked through.

    When chicken is approximately halfway through final cooking period, prepare rice (and/or sauteed vegetables).

    Plate dish with a bed of rice, mixed with vegetables if wanted - or a serving placed on top, then chicken breast (either whole if you're feeling mean and want ppl to work for their food, or sliced into bite sized pieces). If you are using pineapple sauce, spoon two heaping spoons on each plate, or serve dish with soy sauce available.

    Dig in and enjoy!

    Smothered Chicken

    Preheat oven to 350. Grease a casserole dish. Place chicken breasts in. Season with salt & pepper. Dot with margarine. Evenly put spoonfuls of cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken) soup over chicken. Add a few globs of sour cream and top with either Durkees fried onions or crushed up chips. Bake for 45 minutes and enjoy. (Not exactly a diet recipe but very yummy)

    Chicken breasts in a baking dish with cream of mushroom soup/milk and mushrooms, salt and pepper and sprinkle with stove top stuffing (soaked in some milk).
    Sounds similar to the above poster. I like the onions on top too!

    Butter and flour in a pan (2lbs of each roughly, I never measure) and add about 2 cups of milk, let thicken. Add fried mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup, parmesean cheese, s & p, splash of wine and shrimp (or chicken). Serve on white rice and it is sooooo yummy!

    sugar pumpkins or acorn squash (1 to 2 pounds each)

    Salt and ground black pepper

    6
    tablespoon butter

    6
    tablespoons all-purpose flour

    3
    cups canned chicken broth

    8
    ounces frozen mixed vegetables

    8
    ounces frozen pearl onions or chopped onions

    4
    cups cooked chicken, cut into bite-size pieces

    1
    tablespoon dried thyme

    1
    tablespoon dried leaf sage

    2
    tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

    1
    refrigerated pie crust
