The frugal recipes with rice for June 16 had a recipe for chicken using mushroom soup and sour cream for sauce. I've had a similar recipe for 40+ years that my mother's, Mother's Club, had for their luncheons.

The only difference in my recipe and the one in the newsletter, I add 1/2 C. sherry (cooking sherry can be used) to the sauce. I usually serve mine with baked potato since my family won't eat rice and the sauce serves as a gravy for the potato.

Sour Cream Chicken over Rice
Makes 4 Servings

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream
2 cups cooked rice

Cut cooked chicken into bite size pieces. Salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup sour cream. Mix together. Cover casserole with foil. Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve over rice.

Over the weekend I made the Cod Recipe Jody in Spring, Texas sent into the newsletter recently. I used Rockfish, which is similar to cod, or halibut, and it was really delicious. For sure I will be using that recipe again. Thank you, Jody!

Thanks for the recipes for Pickled Peppers. I can hardly wait to try them all.

I know this sounds crazy, but what is the difference in white vinegar and apple cider vinegar. Could I substitute one for the other?

The Cherry Rice pudding post
I have the similar recipe and you soak the cherries in "warm brandy" to puff them up if you don't have brandy I have used warm coca cola.

Here are a couple of frugal recipes from my early marriage years. We found that pork and beans were a lifesaver in being frugal. I first made this recipe in the oven but then adapted it for the microwave.

Sue's Baked Beans

1/4 pound thin sliced bacon
1/4 cup onions, chopped
1/4 cup green peppers, chopped
2 cans baked beans
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons dark molasses (I used maple flavored pancake syrup)
1 tablespoons dry mustard
1 tablespoons brown sugar

Place bacon in a 2 quart casserole baking dish. Microwave on high until crispy. Remove bacon. Cut in 1" pieces. Set aside. Add onions and peppers to bacon drippings. Microwave until tender. Drain off grease. Add bacon and remaining ingredients. Cover with a tight fitting lid or plastic wrap. Microwave on high 5-6 minutes or until bubbly. Stir, then microwave on medium for an additional 10-15 minutes.
