So here's an easy recipe.
You can use whatever you want, thighs, legs, breasts, whatever.
4-8 chicken pieces
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup grated cheese
Combine the soups and cheese (you can use a 1/2 cup of white wine as well****) and blend. Pour your mixture into a backing pan. Place chicken ontop of mixture. Cover pan with foil and bake in a 325 degree oven for 2 and a half hours. Remove from oven. Remove foil. Sprinkle almonds and pop back in the oven for 30 more minutes.
[*** Added September 24th, If you do not use a 1/2 cup of white wine, use 2/3 a cup of water. My apologies for forgetting that.***]
That's 3 hours, I know.
Ginger wanted a recipe she could start and then help the kids with their homework.
I serve the above with rice or mashed potatoes and use the sauce in the pan on top of either. In a pinch, I'll pull slices of wheat bread into strips and put the sauce on top of it.
Now for those who still haven't awakened to the reality about that 'pure' and 'no nonsense' Elizabeth Warren. POLITICO reports:
The campaign for Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren said Friday she had been paid $192,722 for serving as chairman of a congressional committee that monitored the 2008 federal bank bailout, three times as much as had originally been acknowledged on Thursday highlighting the fact that the Congressional Oversight Panel, which oversaw the TARP program, has not publicly disclosed exactly how it spent $10.5 million on salaries, travel, consultants and other expenses. Warren said she now supports public access to the oversight panel’s records, though her campaign wouldn’t say if she plans to actively push to open up the records.
If you forgot, when she left the Committee, she had to file disclosures for her next job. And her disclosures said she made $64,000. That's about $130,000 short. How do you make that mistake?
