     Chicken Noodle Bake

    Depending on how many people you are feed work this on a sliding scale. For my family of four this is how I make it. 

    1 large chicken breast cooked, deboned, and chopped up, 1 16oz box of noddles, cooked and drained, 1 16oz pkg of frozen chopped spinach, 2 cups cream of soup (i use the recipe i found on here) 1 medium onion chopped, 8-10 mushrooms quartered, 1 cup of cottage/ or  ricotta cheese, enough shredded cheese to cover the top. I saute the onions and mushrooms until soft, mix in everything else except the cheese spread in a oiled 9x13 pan. Top with cheese and bake at 350F for 25-35 minutes until bubbly and the cheese has that deliouse golden brown crust on it.

    If this is any indication on how much my family loves this neither of my children eat spinach or onions, one dislikes mushrooms and one dislikes chicken, but they will clean out the entire pan if I would let them.

    Oven baked "fried" chicken

    1/2 cup crackers

    2 pieces chicken (cleaned; can be boned or not, skinless or not - but skinless is better, I tihnk)

    1 TB butter, melted

    salt and pepper to taste

    Crush crackers; add salt and pepper to taste.  Place half of cracker mix in pan; place chicken on mix; add other half of cracker mix on top; dribble butter over top.  You can dip the chicken in the butter and then in the cracker mix - but this is a lot easier, and works just as well.  Bake at 350* for 30 minutes or until cooked.


    Add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese to crackers

    Add favorite poultry seasoning to crackers

    In place of crackers use bread crumbs, stale cereal (Chex-type cereals work well, as do corn flakes - for a different crunch, try Frosted Flakes), potato chips, mashed potato flakes, etc. - any stale starch-based food will work.  Adjust proportions to taste.

    HINT:  the easiest way to crush the crackers (or other dry ingredient) is to put them in a plastic bag and roll a rolling pin or canned item over the bag until the crackers are crushed - then dip the chicken in the melted butter, put in the bag and shake to coat.

    I really like a simple chicken salad... leftover chicken, onions, celery, parsley, garlic powder, fresh cracked pepper, and champagne mustard (a bunch of it because I hate mayo). I had some on crackers for lunch today!

    For something quick and tasty we love Chicken Scallopini (or Schnitzel - practically the same thing, different countries and garnishes).

    Pound a chicken breast out thin, you want it between 1/4" and 1/2" thick.  Dredge in flour, than an egg wash, then a mixture of seasoned breadcrumbs and parmesean cheese (about a 3:1 ratio of breadcrumbs to cheese).  Cover the bottom of a skillet with olive oil and fry.  Normally takes around 2 - 3 minutes per side. Great with roasted potatoes, seasoned rice, pasta with a light sauce, etc.
