Chicken Tetrazini

4-5 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
½ c. butter
½ c. flour
3 c. chicken broth
2 c. milk
1 c. whipping cream
1 ½ pkg. angel hair pasta, cooked
Sliced mushrooms (optional, but very tasty)
Bread crumbs (don’t buy the cheap kind, they need a good flavor)
Monterey jack and cheddar cheese, shredded

In saucepan, melt butter, then add flour. Add chicken broth and milk, slowly while stirring. Stir constantly until thickened. Remove from heat. Add whipping cream. Add salt and pepper. Place cooked noodles in casserole dish. (should fill 2/3 of pan) Layer chicken on noodles, then mushrooms, and cheeses. Finally, sprinkle a thick layer of breadcrumbs on top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

I forgot about this recipe until I was looking for something to make for Cuqui. Another friend brought this dish to us when Ellie was born and I HAD to have the recipe.

Badda "Bean" Badda Boom

1/2 onion (sauteed)

1 cup bacon cut up or bacon bits (sauteed with onions)

2 cans of baked beans

1 can of green beans (drained)

1/2 can of garbanzo beans (drained)

1 can of kidney beans (drained)

1/3 cup BBQ sauce

1 TBS Worcestershire sauce

1 TBS brown sugar

garlic salt to taste

Saute the onion and the bacon together in a large pot on the stove. Then add all the other ingredients and simmer in pot for about 35 minute on med/high. Stirring occasionally.

I made this last week and just through it together. It is usually a side dish but with the bacon in it I say it can be a main course. It sounds pretty healthy too. All that fiber and veggies and stuff! My family ate it and didn't complain...:)
