Re: Any Of You Cook?


An easy, delicious and fairly quick meal...

In a baking dish, pour in 1 family size can of Cream of Mushroom soup.

Add 1 can of milk (same soup container)

Stir it around to mix things up.

Add 1.5 cups of rice. I like regular white rice.

On top of the mixture, place two chicken breasts. I use bone in and skin on.

Salt and pepper the chicken.

Place in a 375* oven for one hour or until the chicken internal temperature comes to 165*

Serve.

As basic as it gets...pretty tasty and filling.

The big one....22.6 ounces and that much milk.

I breast...1 smaller can...half the rice.

The liquid is for flavor and for the rice to absorb.

You can cook as much or little rice as you like as long as you have enough liquid...in a shallow area.

Looks good. I love that stuff

One of my favorite meals that isnt steak and bbq is goulash, we made it two times a week at least when we were first married. It's cheap and easy to make with busy schedules. I guess it held over

****, we didn't have a proper steak for 5 years

Re: Any Of You Cook?


I made a big pot of this last week and took some down to customers whose kitchen is non existent because I have it torn out.....

They still have a microwave though.

In a skillet, saute a chopped onion and a couple cloves of garlic in olive oil.

After the onion gets translucent, add a pound of ground beef and brown.

While that's happening, cook a regular sized box of elbow macaroni.

When the macaronis is done, drain and add to the meat. Add a can of crushed tomatoes...let simmer for a while.

Serve with Parmesan cheese...salt and pepper to taste.

We grew up with this. My Mom called it American Chop-Suey.

Great stuff to heat up for a quick meal.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


While I'm thinking about it....man, do I love the Thermapen MK4. I was dead-set against it but....insert it and boom...the temperature.

The lighted display and being able to read the temp at any angle is a plus also.

Hard headed....me.

I couldn't afford the stuff without the bone. Bone-in was bad enough.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


My wife was up at the school working on setting up the stage for tomorrow's play last night with the girls and they ate at the school.

I heated my flat cast iron Lodge plate up to searing hot, and tossed 12 oz of back strap on there. Ate it with sauteed mushrooms and onions and spinach. Cooks fast and never gets old

Its good like that with eggs for breakfast too

Like just about all recipe reviewers, I didn't follow it precisely. I used boneless, skinless breasts (SWMBO wants to lose weight). They came out a bit dry. Skin-on would have been better.

We both agreed that half the amount of rice would have been plenty, with the added benefit of extra "gravy" to lube things up a bit. But overall, it's a keeper. Thanks, Rob.

Maybe next time, cover it with tin foil to keep the moisture in.

I have been crazy working the past couple days. 40 hours in less then three nights.

That meant tonight was a cowboy steak with shrooms. God it was good too. 1-1/2" thick black and blue. No room for anything other than my Fred Flinstone inspired meat meal. It was just North of a pound and a half of meat (with bone it was pushing 30 oz). Gonna get to me tomorrow but whatever.

I needed a sit down with my primitive side.

I think if I did boneless and skinless, I'd go ahead and cut up the breasts and submerge the pieces in the mixture before cooking.

That was my first instinct, but who wants boiled chicken? It was just a tad dry, not offensively so. Just a little extra sauce would take care of that, and halving the amount of rice will do it next time.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


For you guys that have Christmas dinner at your place, what are you doing this year?

Every year we try to do something a little different and I’m running out of ideas.

Last year we did a standing rib roast. The year before filet mignon. The year before Cornish hens. The year before Italian chicken (breaded and fried). Ham. Apple stuffed pork roast. Goose…

We’ll feed 10 this year. I’m not opposed to doing the same thing (similar), was hoping you guys could spark some ideas.
