Kalyn's and Mama's Favorite Cheese Baked Chicken
(Adrianne, Madasyn and all of our guys like it, too.)
*note: I used to cook this with a stick of margarine melted in the baking dish. I recently found
a similar recipe that said to:
Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
We liked it this way. It is better for you!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
This is an easy recipe and easy to adjust the quantity to make however much you want--you could do it for 2, or you could do it for a crowd. We tried similar recipes that have more ingredients, and this one is still our very favorite!
I usually use:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 stick margarine, melted, for dipping in
1 cup Parmesan cheese, (The kind in the jar is what we use for our recipe.)
You can cut the chicken into bite size pieces or leave the pieces whole.
Dip the chicken into the margarine, then into the cheese, then place in the prepared baking dish.
Bake for approximately one hour, until golden brown.
Black-Eyed Pea Salad Recipe
(From Taste of Home simple & delicious magazine)
Black-Eyed Pea Salad
“I've had a lot of compliments and requests for this recipe over the years. My husband loves it, and it's especially great on hot days. The salad dressing keeps the avocado from turning dark, even if you have leftovers-which doesn't happen often!” A fun alternative to pasta or potato salad. Nancy Cariker - Bakersfield, California
TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min.
1 can (15-1/2 ounces) black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 large tomato, diced
1 medium ripe California Avocado, peeled and diced
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
2 green onions, chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/3 cup prepared Italian salad dressing
Directions: In a large serving bowl, combine all the ingredients; toss to coat. Serve with a slotted spoon. Yield: 4 servings.
Note from Sandy-Our adaptations: We ommitted the green pepper, cilantro and avacado this time, and added fresh corn cut from one cob. We really liked it a lot! We will try it again with all of the ingredients. The avacados and green peppers just weren't good this week.
