These links have been saved in my bloglines, just waiting for me to remember not to forget to try them someday. Don’t they look delicious? Forget meeting at the park; if I ever mirl with these people, I want them to invite me to their homes for a meal!
- Crystal’s Lazy Granola
- Tammy’s Orange Vanilla Dream Cheesecake looks like it could easily be made low-carb. I’ll let you know. Hubby loves orange sherbet/vanilla ice cream, so I can’t wait to try this recipe on him.
- Easy Ice Cream Toppings from The Common Room look, well, easy. And yummy.
- Even better, try The Common Room’s recipe for Almond Joy cake – but make sure you have a gallon of milk for drinking and lots of friends to help you eat it all.
- Granny’s Crock Pot 40 Clove Garlic Chicken: I have to admit, the 40 cloves scare me a bit, but since when did I let that stop me?
Baked Herb Chicken – I make this in my 18 qt. electric roaster for church fellowships; it feeds a crowd. You could cut it in half for a 9×13 to feed 6-8.
3-4 cups uncooked rice
8 lbs. chicken pieces – I use legs and thighs because they’re cheap
1 large can cream-of-something soup. Yes, I’m ashamed. Just open the can and don’t tell anyone.
6-8 cups water (twice as much water as rice)
1 chicken bouillon cube for each cup of water
2-3 Tbs. of seasoning – I like basil or Italian seasoning. I think Cajun sounds good but haven’t tried it yet.
2 tsp. lemon juice – adds a subtle edge to the dish. Don’t worry; it won’t taste lemony.
Now the easy part:
- Grease the pan. Spread dry rice evenly across the bottom.
- Arrange raw chicken on top.
- Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken and rice.
- Cover and cook until chicken and rice are done. I plug this in before church at 300 degrees and it’s done in 2.5-3 hours. In a regular oven, it would take about 1.5 hours at 325.
We had a bit left over and used it later as the base for a cheesy chicken/broccoli casserole. I deboned the chicken, stirred it into the rice, and added a package of broccoli w/the cooking liquid, some shredded cheese, and heated til bubbly.
