Chicken Pot Pie

Good comfort food - espicially in the fall and winter months. You don't need a side dish for this one, it's a one pot meal. Serve with a fruity jello topped with light whipped cream for desert.

Great for leftover chicken or turkey! Double the recipe for bigger appetites. I like to serve these with carrot raisin salad, pineapple and big glasses of ice cold milk. Kids love these.

Chicken Country Captain
(no ratings)

I love the curry and raisins together in this southern dish. Typically using a whole cut up fryer, I adapted it to use boneless skinless breasts. Serve over rice with cooked cabbage and sugar cookies for desert.

Pan Fried Chicken Breasts
(no ratings)

This recipe is probably a little less fat than calculated b/c of the oil left in the pan that wasn't absorbed. Oh well, eat an extra scoop of desert later ; )

Chicken Tetrazzini
Very Good 4.0/5
(3 ratings)

Traditionally, tetrazzini is made with spaghetti. But I've replaced that with a more substantial noodle like rotini to hold up to the sturdy dish. Goes wonderfully with steamed spinach, garlic breadsticks and lemononade butter cake for desert.

Chicken Fajita Filling
(no ratings)

Great for leftover chicken, uses 2 cups chopped cooked chicken. These are very easy, but quite messy. Grab a napkin and dig in! Serve with mexican style rice and steamed broccoli. Chocolate pudding makes a nice desert.

Chicken Supreme
(no ratings)

This one dish meal is so easy. No need to cook the chicken or the rice first - they both cook together in the oven! Great for company. I like to serve this with a huge mixed green salad and strawberries topped with light whipped cream and a few chocolate chips for desert.

Chicken Bundles
(no ratings)

Fancy enough for company and easy enough for a weeknight! But I wouldn't have these too often as they are not very figure friendly.
