QUICK CHICKEN TETRAZZINI December 27, 2008

Filed under: Chicken Recipes — quotes @ 5:32 am

Serves 2-3

This is even better after standing to let the flavors blend. Green beans and broiled tomato go nicely with this. If you have time, use a good homemade white sauce made with chicken broth and mushrooms instead of the cream of mushroom soup.

1 cup cooked, diced chicken

1 can (10-1/2-ounces) cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

1/2 cup cooked spaghetti (1/4 cup uncooked yields 1/2 cup cooked)

2 tablespoons dry sherry

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Salt and ground pepper to taste (you may not want any since the soup is fairly salty)

Preheat oven to 375oF. In a baking dish combine all ingredients and bake for about 30 minutes until hot and lightly browned.

Turkey in a Bag Christmas Recipe December 25, 2008

Turkey in a Bag recipe
Prepare and stuff turkey in usual manner.

Grease turkey well with butter or margarine.  Salt and pepper as desired. Slide turkey into a clean, heavy brown paper bag.  Coat inside top and sides of the bag with oil until it is completely covered. Close opening firmly and staple the ends, or use paper clips.

Roast according to the schedule below.  Turkey will be well browned, drippings will be in the pan when the bag is opened. Let turkey rest one-half hour before carving.

Do not open bag until time is completed. Bag will not burn. Bake at 325 degrees F 12 minutes per pound.  With no basting or watching, the turkey will be tender throughout and golden brown.

NOTE: Do not use this method on a turkey over 16 pounds.
