I purchased a lot of sugar free Jell-O at the store today.  I need some ideas for making desserts and salads with the sugar free Jell-O.
Thanks, Tina in Arizona

Has any one tried the green skillet advertised on TV? Does it work like they say it does? I would like to know about the RoboStir too.

I received a 4 qt. cast iron Dutch oven. I would like to know if anyone has one and if they like it. Thank you for your feedback.

Hot Chicken Salad Recipes
Nancy D. wanted hot chicken salad recipes in the 8/16 newsletter. I have always thought of these as more casseroles than chicken salad, but will share them in case this is what you wanted. Many in my family won't eat hard cooked eggs in salads or casseroles, so I often substitute mushrooms for the hard cooked eggs in the first recipe, or use water chestnuts, if I want a crunch factor.

Hot Chicken Salad

3 c. diced cooked chicken
1/2 c. chopped celery
2 tsp. chopped onions
1/2 c. sliced almonds
1 (10 oz.) can cream of chicken soup (undiluted)
1 1/2 c. cooked rice
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. chicken stock or water
3 hard boiled eggs
*2 c. crushed potato chips
3/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Combine chicken, celery, onion, almonds, cream of chicken soup, rice, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss gently and set aside.

Combine mayonnaise and chicken stock . Beat with wire whisk until smooth. Pour over chicken mixture. Stir well, add sliced cooked eggs to the chicken mixture and toss lightly. Spoon into a greased 2 quart shallow baking dish; cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with potato chips and shredded cheese. Bake another 5 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings. *Instead of potato chips you could use crackers or bread crumbs with the cheese for topping.

Hot Cheesy Chicken Salad

4 cups cubed cooked chicken
1/2cups chopped celery
2 cans (8 ounces each) sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) sour cream
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs

In a large bowl, combine the first 12 ingredients. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese and bread crumbs. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. The recipe said it would yield 12 servings, but I must have big eaters as it served 6 with a dab leftover.
