    Baked Chicken OR Pork Chops #1

    Marinate your chicken in Italian dressing for about 1 hour then roll in Italian style bread crumbs that have Parmesan and Romano cheeses mixed in - bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending upon how thick/big they are. Serve with roasted potatoes, a veggie or salad.

    Baked Chicken OR Pork Chops #2

    1 box of stuffing mix like Stove Top

    4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

    1 can condensed Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken soup - I like Campbell's but any brand will work

    1/2 soup can of milk

    1/4 cup bread crumbs - I like Italian style

    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix the can of soup and milk; set aside. Make stuffing mix according to package directions and spread into a greased 13x9 in baking pan. Place chicken pieces over the stuffing. Cover with the soup mixture. Sprinkle the shredded cheese and bread crumbs over the top of the chicken and bake for 45 minutes to one hour depending upon how thick you chicken pieces are. Serve with a green salad.

    Prepared macaroni and cheese can be substituted for the stuffing.

    Baked Chicken #3 or Pork Chops

    4-6 boneless chicken breasts

    1 can cherry pie filling

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray a baking pan with Pam or other non-stick spray. Arrange chicken on pan and spoon on 1/2 cherry pie filling. Bake for 30 minutes then spoon or brush on remaining pie filling and cook for another 30 minutes or until the meat is done. Serve with white rice, rice pilaf, roasted or mashed potatoes, a steamed veggie and a salad. If doing pork chops, do not forget the applesauce.


    Stove Top BBQ'd Pork chops or Chicken

    Melt a little butter in a big heavy frying pan, add some slice onion and cook until tender. Put you pork chops in the frying pan and brown on both sides. Cover with your favorite BBQ sauce, cover the pan and simmer until the chops are tender. Serve with rice, potato salad or mashed potatoes and a veggie.


    Classic Potato Salad


    2 pounds potatoes (6 medium) - Use red or Yukon Gold potatoes

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1-1/4 cups Miracle Whip or mayonnaise - I prefer Miracle Whip, it gives the potato salad a bit more of a zing

    1 tablespoon yellow mustard

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    1 cup thinly sliced celery (2 stalks)

    1/3 cup chopped onion (1 small)

    6 Hard-Cooked Eggs, coarsely chopped


    In a medium saucepan place potatoes, the 1/4 teaspoon salt, and enough water to cover. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until just tender. Drain well; cool slightly. Cube the potatoes.

    Meanwhile, for dressing, in a large bowl combine Miracle Whip, mustard, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the pepper.

    Stir in the celery and onion. Add the potatoes and eggs. Toss lightly to coat. Cover and chill for 6 to 24 hours.


    Macaroni and Cheese - add a pound diced ham, a pound of browned hamburger or a package of sliced hot dogs and a package of frozen mixed veggies, peas or corn to the mac and cheese before pouring it into the baking dish to make a hearty meal.


    8 ounces dried elbow macaroni (2 cups)

    1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)

    2 tablespoons butter

    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon dry mustard - I like Coleman's English

    1/8 teaspoon black pepper

    2-1/2 cups milk

    1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (6 ounces)

    1-1/2 cups shredded American cheese (6 ounces) - I like to use Veleeta


    Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain; set aside.

    Meanwhile, for cheese sauce, in a medium saucepan cook onion in hot butter until tender but not brown. Stir in flour, dry mustard and pepper. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly. Add cheeses, stirring until melted. Stir in cooked macaroni. Transfer mixture to a 2-quart casserole.

    Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.

    Saucepan Macaroni and Cheese: Prepare as above, except reduce milk to 2 cups. After draining macaroni, immediately return macaroni to the saucepan. Pour cheese sauce over macaroni; stir to coat macaroni with sauce. Cook over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through, stirring frequently. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.


    Beer Brats

    Boil your Brats in the beer that you have add some sliced onions and garlic to and use a good dark beer like Guinness. I actually like to use both Guinness and either Bass Ale or Harps Ale because I like the taste of Black and Tans. Remove the Brats and onions from the beer, keeping the onions. After removing your Brats from the beer, continue to boil the beer until you reduce it by at least half and then brush it on the sausages while grilling. Take the leftover onions and saute them in a pan or on the grill with a bit of butter and serve over the grilled Brats with spicy mustard and maybe some sauerkraut.


    Smoked Sausage and either Au Gratin or Scalloped potatoes.

    Make your own potatoes or use the Betty Crocker boxed ones, slice up a piece of smoked sausage and mix into the potatoes. Bake according to recipe directions. I like to serve this with a tossed salad and a large glass of unsweetened Iced Tea.


    Meatloaf - served with baked or smashed potatoes and whole green beans or steamed baby carrots.


    3 pounds ground beef

    3 large eggs

    1/2 to 3/4 cup Italian style bread crumbs

    1 packet Lipton's Onion or Beefy Onion Soup Mix

    1 can sliced mushrooms - drained

    1/2 cup sliced black olives

    2 tablespoons BBQ sauce

    1 tablespoon A-1 sauce

    1/2 cup salsa

    1/2 cup shredded cheese - I use a combination of Cheddar, Italian Blend and Pepper-Jack cheeses or whatever I have on hand

    Mix all ingredients, form into a loaf in a loaf pan, bake at 350 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours.

    Since tomatoes are back on the approved list, I would recommend a large tomato stuffed with tuna salad, with chips and cantaloupe for dessert. This is a great summer meal.

    well im azn so i often eat rice, and a type of meat. a good way to cook chinken drumsticks is to first fry them witout any seasoning or sauce. if u do, itll burn. once its completely done, u can add the flavorings that u like. but i doube that u eat rice, so u can put it onto a salad. maybe a sandwich?
