Lemon Pepper Chicken

4-6 chicken breasts
1/2 c. melted margarine
1/2 cup soy sauce
Lemon Pepper
Bake 350 degrees, covered1 hour
This comes from my 4 ingredient cookbook and it is so yummy. The sauce that the chicken cooks in tastes like the dipping sauce for lettuce wraps. We served it with rice and put some extra sauce on the rice too!

MawMaw's Spaghetti

by Anne Jones
Great Recipe...we call it "MawMaw's Spagetti" b/c my MawMaw always made it and we have no idea where the recipe originally came from.

In skillet, saute hamburger meat just like you would for spagetti.In a saucepan add 1/2 block of Velveeta cheese(chop it up so it will melt faster), 1 can cream of mushroom soup, and one can of tomato soup. I like to also add extra mushrooms, but not everyone likes mushrooms!
Heat until all melted and blended together.
Boil pasta, and add sause and meat! Voila!

Awesome MawMaw's spagetti! We love it, especially with toast instead of garlic bread! yeah, we are cheap! :)Enjoy!

Chicken and Rice

My family LOVED MawMaw's spaghetti!
Now here is one of our favorites and it freezes beautifully.
Chicken and Rice
2 (6.2-ounce) packages fast-cooking long-grain and wild rice mix
2 (10 1/2-ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth
1 (8-ounce) package fresh mushroom slices
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
2/3 cup (reduced fat or no fat)Italian dressing
1 (8-ounce) container lite sour cream
Cook rice in a large saucepan according to package directions, using 2 cans chicken broth instead of water. Add mushrooms before the last 5 minutes. Stir in chicken, dressing, and sour cream; spoon into a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish. Bake at 325° for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Let stand 10 minutes.

Everything Sauce

I really don't have a name for this sauce, but it is so yummy we continue to invent things to put it on. Maybe pancakes! :-)

In a small saucepan over low heat, put:
1/2 stick butter
juice of 1 lemon (I use concentrate)
yolk of 1 egg

Heat and stir until butter is melted, then add:
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 stick butter

Stir until butter is melted and serve.

Yesterday we had baked salmon, angel hair pasta, and green peas. For the kids I made 3 little piles on their plates and poured the sauce over all of it. For Troy and I, I started with the pasta and piled the salmon and peas on.

I have also put this on top of an angel hair dish that I put grilled chicken strips and sautee'd (in garlic and butter, of course) spinach, peas, and mushrooms on. Add Faux Focaccia and you will think you're at the Macaroni Grill!
