Chicken Spaghetti (Pioneer Woman)

 

I will be honest that I had never heard of this dish but it was a popular one on the Weight Watchers message boards.  This appears in PW first or second cookbook.  It's a great recipe (but I have nothing to compare it to and don't know if it's authentic to the Chicken Spaghetti purists).

 

Chicken Spaghetti


PREP TIME:
30 Minutes


DIFFICULTY:
Easy


COOK TIME:
45 Minutes


SERVINGS:
8 Servings


INGREDIENTS


2 cups Cooked Chicken
3 cups Dry Spaghetti, Broken Into Two Inch Pieces
2 cans Cream Of Mushroom Soup
2 cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Finely Diced Green Pepper
1/4 cup Finely Diced Onion
1 jar (4 Ounce) Diced Pimentos, Drained
2 cups Reserved Chicken Broth From Pot
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1/8 teaspoon (to 1/4 Teaspoon) Cayenne Pepper
Salt And Pepper, to taste
1 cup Additional Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese


INSTRUCTIONS


Cook 1 cut up fryer and pick out the meat to make two cups. Cook spaghetti in same chicken broth until al dente. Do not overcook. When spaghetti is cooked, combine with remaining ingredients except additional 1 cup sharp cheddar.

 

Place mixture in casserole pan and top with remaining sharp cheddar. Cover and freeze up to six months, cover and refrigerate up to two days, or bake immediately: 350 degrees for 45 minutes until bubbly. (If the cheese on top starts to get too cooked, cover with foil).

Re: NOVEMBER 2017 RECIPE GAME

I don't use a recipe but here is my suggestion for breakfast.

 

In a fry pan, put 1 can corned beef and equal amount of frozen hashbrowns.  Cook until potatoes are tender and corned beef is slightly browned.

 

Put on a plate and top with your favorite egg.

 

For extra special breakfast (not low calorie) add white gravy.

 

 

White Gravy

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 tablespoons butter (1T = 1 cup; 3 T = 1 1/2 cup, 4 T = 2 cups)
  • 2-3 tablespoons flour (be sure to have equal amounts oil to flour)
  • 1 cup milk (or amount shown above for oil & flour)
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions:

In small saucepan, melt butter. (OR bacon grease, or any oil)

Once butter is melted, add the flour and stir.  Make sure all flour is in some oil.  If not, it will lump.

Slowly add the milk, a little at a time and whisk to incorporate. Stir continuously.

The gravy will go from looking like thick mashed potatoes to gravy consistency as you add milk. 

 

(I use 1 sm can evaporated milk in measuring cup and add water to whatever amount you are making.)

Cook for 5 mins for a better taste

Add salt and pepper to taste.  (I like more pepper)

 

Next ingredient:  Brussels sprouts

Lemon Yogurt Cake (Ina Garten)

 

This is my go-to summer recipe for parties and work events.

 

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 extra-large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (2 lemons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

 

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8½ x 4¼ x 2½-inch loaf pan.  Line the bottom with parchment paper.  Grease and flour the pan.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt into one bowl.  In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, 1 cup sugar, the eggs, lemon zest, and vanilla.  Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.  With a rubber spatula, fold the vegetable oil into the batter, making sure it’s all incorporated.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50 minutes, or until a cake tester placed in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

 

Meanwhile, cook the 1/3 cup lemon juice and remaining 1/3 cup sugar in a small pan until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is clear.  Set aside.

When the cake is done, allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. 

 

Carefully place on a baking rack over a sheet pan.  While the cake is still warm, pour the lemon-sugar mixture over the cake and allow it to soak in.  Cool.

 

For the glaze, combine the confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice and pour over the cake.
