Simple 15 Minute Chicken Noodle Soup

I'm sick.  My twins are sick.  The house is a mess.  We are tired.  We are fussy.  We are hungry and it's time to cook, as fast as I can so we can all crawl back into bed, eat and watch tv.  My go to is usually Chicken and Noodle Soup.  It is delicious and cooks in 15 minutes...could you possibly ask for a more simple, quick and delicious meal?

Chicken Enchiladas

Happy Cinco de Mayo!   My oldest son loves Mexican food.  Heck, most of us here do.  This was my first attempt at making Chicken Enchiladas and they must have turned out okay...there wasn't any left.  Hubby bought enchilada sauce, I opened it and threw it away.  YUCK!   I don't know what it was but that had me set on making my own.  We all loved these, so maybe, the homemade sauce wasn't so bad.

Chicken Stuffing Casserole

Nice for lunch or supper with a salad of choice.  I could just eat it out of the pan!  ~smile~   You can top the chicken with cheese.  Add different veggies while sauteing.  Use pork chops instead of chicken.  Add stuffing on the bottom, put meat, sauteed veggies, stuffing on top.  Double and make more.  Put the meat on top....blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, my boys would say.  ~smile~  Enjoy!

Chicken and Dumplings...Comfort Food For Hubby

Hubby isn't well.  The boys gave it to me and then to him.  He hasn't been sick in years and truly thinks he is invincible.  No germs will touch me!  Uh Huh!  They finally caught up with him and while he is sick, has a fever and all the other yucks...he keeps going.  I wanted to make him something to comfort him and the first food that entered my mind was Chicken and Dumplings.  I love them!  He loves them!  We all love them!  Well, maybe not my picky one(s), but that's just a matter of time.  If you, or someone dear to you, is in need of some down home comfort food, this is it.  Enjoy the feeling!

Fried Chicken in the Oven, Really!

You can fry chicken in the oven..really!  Not breaded and placed on a baking sheet.  But in a chicken fryer/dutch oven and with oil in the pan.  Not much, mind you, but enough to fry chicken.  I just finished frying mine and Oh My, it was sooo good!  It reminded me of eating Kentucky Fried Chicken!

I saw this at Christy Jordan's Southern Plate.  I just love Christy, don't you?  Hey Christy!  ~waving hard~  She said you need to check your oven temperature and you do!  If you oil isn't hot enough you will end up with greasy chicken.  You know how that goes.  Yes, just like it does on the stove.  I have done that a time or two.  I changed things a I always do.  ~smile~   I could only good cook a half a chicken at the time.  If you are cooking a whole chicken, you will need two chicken fryers/dutch ovens or cook in batches.  Are you ready to make Fried Chicken in the Oven?  Great!  Save me the pulley bone!  ~wink~

Parsley Lemon Butter Chicken

I made this the other night and my boys ate it all.  The next night, they asked for it again. ~smile~   Obviously, the amount of butter/margarine can be reduced.  I made this recipe the first time the day I started to make something with german chocolate and found the box opened and could not use it.  Since I already had the margarine melted ...I  used it for the chicken.  YUM!

This is what was left after supper! 

Parsley Lemon Butter Chicken 

1/2 cup margarine or butter
4 to 5 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 T garlic, 3-5 cloves, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste after cooking

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Rinse chicken and remove any giblets.  For some reason, I don’t ever get any in my chickens any more.  I love chicken liver.  Cut down the back and place breast side down in pan.  Heat all ingredients in a small pot until margarine is melted.   Spoon a little of the sauce on chicken, to cover.   Flip the chicken over and spoon the rest over the chicken.  Cook in preheated oven for 45 minutes, checking after 25-30 and tenting with foil so the parsley does not burn.  After 45 minutes, turn oven to 350 degrees and cook another 45 minutes or until chicken is 165 degrees, the leg joint breaks free easily, and juices run clear.  Can serve sauce over chicken pieces or for dipping.  I bet it would even be great to make rice.  ~smile~ Enjoy!

Chicken Noodle Soup

It's cooler, I want soup!  Hubby, one of the twins and I just love soup!  Homemade soup that is. Soup that is made with love and not from a machine.  Although they do come in handy every now and then when hubby cooks for the boys.  It's just too easy to make soup from scratch.  A little this, some of that.  What's left in the fridge, in the pot it goes and you made a new favorite!  This one, however, is an old classic.  Super easy and ready to eat in 30 minutes.  Enjoy!

Chicken Noodle Soup

2 chicken breast halves
12 cups chicken broth,  homemade or bought
1 1/2 cups celery, sliced
2 cup carrots, sliced, I cut up baby ones
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper, or to taste
1/2 to 1 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground garlic
1 16 oz package thin egg noodles, make your own egg noodles
thyme, optional

Rinse chicken breast.  Put in large stock pot along with broth, celery, pepper, garlic, salt and onion. Bring to a boil and simmer, to low boil, 20 minutes. 
Take chicken breast out and cut into bite size pieces if done, not pink inside. Raise heat to boil broth. Add egg noodles (whole package makes a lot of noodles) , carrots and chicken pieces to pot.  Cook according to directions on egg noodle package.  
Sprinkle with thyme before serving if desired.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Everyone loves fried chicken!  That is, I have never met anyone that doesn't love fried chicken.  I know we do here and I can't remember ever going to a reunion, homecoming or any other get together, without at least one big ole pan full of crunchy, delicious pieces of fried chicken!

It is so easy to cook and so rewarding once finished.  Gather the need to call your neighbors they will come aknocking on your door, to eat this down home Southern Comfort Food. <3 and Hugs Y'all!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup

I made this also since we didn't have Chicken Cordon Bleu for my Hubby's Birthday.  A Super Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu meal using the recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Egg Noodles  just adding more cream.   It Was Delicious!  I hope you like it also.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Egg Noodles

I was going to make Chicken Cordon Bleu for my Husband's birthday on Tuesday except, that word always comes into play around here, the Twins were sick and we spent most of the day on the phone, at the Dr's office and pharmacy.  Luckily I bought a ham in the morning, came home and put it in the crock pot.  Which turned out Delicious, by the way.

We still wanted Chicken Cordon Bleu but I didn't feel like making it.  I decided to make a easier version of it instead.  I think you will also like Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup.  UMMM!

Note...In picture below I added the chicken at the beginning.  For bigger pieces, add at the end as the recipes states.

Chicken and Cornbread Dressing

Nothing says comfort more than food that is from a family recipe.  Love, Love the way it feels deep inside as we make and eat old time favorites.  This was always "fixed" at Holidays and gatherings whether it is for a celebration or mourning.  Everyone makes it a little different.  Mine is a little different than my Precious Mama’s and Hers different than her Sweet Mama’s.  I’ll share my recipe today with the heartfelt comfort of Memories of Beautiful times gone by.  Make this and share with your family if you don’t already.  A Big Ole Pan a “Dressin’”  just makes everyone smile as they eat way too much of this Southern Favorite.  Enjoy <3 and Hugs!

Brined Roasted Chicken

I had never brined a chicken before...that is until a few weeks ago and now I am hooked!  I found the brine on the back of my Kosher Salt box.  :D  I adapted this recipe from it.  

I just love the way it makes the chicken taste and it is oh so moist!  Very simple to do.  Add herbs, fruit, garlic...whatever you wish to the brine.  Enjoy!
