What is your most favorite recipe?

One of my most favorite recipes is called Forgotten Chicken. It is a very very simple recipe, but I think its yummy and a real time saver when you have other things you need to be doing. It is one of those recipes that you can change to your likes AND once you put it in the oven you can totally forget about it for 1 1/2 hours. Careful adding salt as the soups can make the soup salty enough for most people. :) :) :)

Forgotten Chicken

1 cup uncooked rice
1 can chicken broth
1/2 package of Lipton Soup dry mix
6 skinless chicken thighs (can use breast but thighs are best)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 small cans of sliced mushrooms

Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with canola oil, spread uncooked rice on bottom of pan. Mix canned soups and water, add salt and pepper to taste. Pour half of mixed canned soups over rice, let stand for 10 minutes, then add chicken and remainder of soups. Top with Lipton soup mix, cover with foil. Bake in 350 oven for 1 1/2 hours.

That sounds good Icy. I'll have to think about the question for awhile before I can answer. I have so many recipes that I like.

Bolognese Sauce

I have two. Here is the first one. I usually double, triple, or quadruple this recipe as it freezes well and is always in demand.

2 tablespoons evoo
1 small onion minced
1 carrot minced
1 celery stalk
cup minced bacon
lb sausage
lb beef
cup dry white wine
6 large tomatoes
1 cup stock
1 cup cream


Saute onion, celery, carrots and bacon with evoo till tender over med heat.

Add beef and sausage. Cook till no longer red. Add wine and raise heat a little bit. Cook off most of the liquid.

Add tomatoes and stock. Turn heat to low. After about an hour season with salt and pepper. Cook another hour till much of the liquid is gone.

Add cream and cook another 15 - 30 minutes.

Cbz

And here is my other one...

Chicken Broccoli Ziti

1 pound dry ziti pasta
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pint heavy cream
1 (10.75 ounce) can chicken broth
1 cube chicken bouillon
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 large heads broccoli, steamed
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts - breaded and fried


1 In a large pot of salted boiling water, place pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until pasta is al dente. Drain.

2 In a large skillet, saute garlic in butter over medium heat. Stir in the heavy cream, chicken broth and bouillon. Add parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Add cornstarch (adjust amount to thicken sauce to your liking). Simmer all together for about 20 minutes.

3 Once sauce is cooked and thickens, add broccoli, stir all together and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Once sauce is done, put cooked ziti pasta in a large bowl, pour sauce over pasta and toss to coat and mix. Then add the chicken pieces and mix all together.

Geez, there's so many. Some of my favorite things to make: chili, jambalaya, beef stroganoff, beef rouladene, cream of tomato/zucchini soup & prime rib. Um, and steaks.

I'll have to hunt up some recipes, but I don't have time to type them all in right now!
