Chicken Broccoli Casserole

I love nights when I can dump and go. This Chicken Broccoli Casserole is one of those easy recipes. The hardest part is cooking and dicing the chicken. To make it even faster use left over chicken or thanksgiving turkey, canned chicken or even rotisserie chicken. The recipe calls for frozen broccoli because it is ready to go, no need to thaw. In fact the extra water makes the sauce a little more soupy which is the way we like it. You are welcome to use fresh broccoli, just make sure to cut ...

Tortilla Soup

The next soup in the Martha Stewart's Cooking School Cookbook is Tortilla Soup. We were super excited after reading the recipe because our stock was already made and frozen. We had extra chicken from our chicken soup so making the tortilla soup was going to be super easy! We had a little shopping to do to pick up a few extra ingredients.  The chili puree took the longest time but it was easy. This was Little Chef D's assignment. She found it VERY interesting that both chili's began as ...

Chicken Soup

We initially thought making Chicken Soup would be easy now that we have the stock. Well...perhaps it would be, but in following the directions in the Martha Stewart's Cooking School Cookbook it wasn't that easy. We made stock again, but this time we cooked the meat in the stock. So, we did two things at once. Maybe that made it a little better? Once the chicken was cooked, shredded and the stock was strained as explained in the cookbook we refrigerated it all and went off for a few ...

How We Cut Up A Chicken

In order to make Chicken Soup (come back on Friday) we needed to learn how to cut up a chicken. We went to the grocery store and bought a whole chicken.

Tangy Spinach Chicken Salad

Do you ever have a night where you want something light and easy? Salads seem to fit that description in our house. We love this Tangy Spinach Chicken Salad because it seems to have little prep work. But then when I think about it the only reason it has little prep work is because we have done the cooking earlier in the day, or the day before. We always have frozen chicken. Once thing I have learned is to defrost the chicken most of the way in the microwave. When it is still slightly firm ...
