Roasted Garlic & Feta Mushrooms with Runny Egg

I know this one sounds a little strange, but give it a try; it's a great source of protein. The sweetness of the roasted garlic pairs really nicely with the feta, and the egg yolk binds all of the flavors into one cohesive package. If you're squeamish about undercooked eggs or can't eat egg yolks, this probably isn't the recipe for you as I've tried it with the egg cooked differently and never found it as good.

Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs. Submitted by BETHPROVERBS31

Nancy's Ol' Fashioned, Easy, Simple Chicken Soup...Un-Chained Recipe Contest!

This is (a) an improvement on Corner Bakery Cafe's Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup; (b) a large pot of vitamin-rich, naturally sweet, nutritious, chicken soup that (c) is very easy to make, (d) freezes well, (e) feeds about a dozen hungry people, and (f) I make throughout the year after having and making many different variations on a theme for many years

Although it can take a little time to get the chicken off the bones, it's SO worth it! Also, if you don't want to use a whole chicken or shredding it just isn't your thing, you can use chicken parts or whole breasts instead, cut off the big chunks, and dice or shred them. They'll take less cooking time, too.

There's nothing better for you, especially when ONLY chicken soup will do! It's not ambrosia (nectar of the gods), but it's as close as I can get! I appreciate your feedback and input. Enjoy! SparkPeople rocks my world! Nancy, a/k/a KEEPITMOVINGSubmitted by KEEPITMOVING
