Betty Crocker Free Samples Just for You 

Yesterday I had 4 boneless chicken breasts, a small cabbage, and 1/2 a bag mini carrots left. I didn't have a recipe with those ingredients so went the the pantry and found a couple cans (14 ounce) of Mexican flavored stewed tomatoes. Put all the ingredients in the crockpot and let it cook all day while I was at work.

After I came home from work I wasn't sure how it would taste. It was a winner. My family loved it. Just served it with some green beans and a salad.

Back in the old days (before I started working) I used to make a chicken pot pie with a jar of gravy, some chicken and had some sort biscuit topping. Could someone help me with a recipe for this. I don't remember how the amount of each ingredient. I suspect I used canned biscuits for the top. I think it had vegetables in it too.
Thank you in advance, Carol

For Linda, who recently inquired about removing lime deposits from a shower door, we have had good success with a product called CLR. It can be found at Wal-Mart and most hardware stores. Others have also recommended it in past newsletters. Once you get them clean you can put a layer of car wax on them to help prevent future build up. Rain-X and Turtle Wax are 2 products that are frequently recommended. If you can get everyone to squeegee the door after a shower it will also help prevent future problems.

Karen's request for recipes for tuna pot pie using biscuits, reminded me of this recipe. It is easy to make and can be a frugal meal, if you buy the tuna on sale. It can easily be cut in half. I do think I have the recipe Karen needs, but will have to find it, as it is not on my computer.

We really like this pie, as it is quick to make when having a chocolate craving. We like it best warm topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It calls for 1 cup sugar, but I cut back some on that, as find it doesn't need that much.

Crustless Brownie Pie Recipe

1 (scant) cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Pinch salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Combine all ingredients (except nuts) and beat 4 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer. Stir in nuts, if using. Put batter into a buttered 9" pie plate. Bake at 325 for 35 to 40 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean, when inserted in the middle. The pie will puff up and then fall slightly. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

I would like a recipe for crescent rolls with a warm cheesecake filling. I had one years ago but can't find it any more.

Judy's Chicken Recipes
If you are like me, I'm always looking for different ways to prepare chicken and the following two recipes have fast become favorites.

This tasty recipe makes a lot, but can be easily cut in half. Is a wonderful variation from just a usual baked chicken recipe. You have to allow for extra time for marinating, so has to be prepared a day ahead of cooking.

Honey Mustard Chicken

5 lbs. chicken thighs (can remove skin)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
Salt & pepper, to taste

Combine honey, mustard and vinegar and marinade chicken covered overnight in refrigerator. Place chicken with marinade in baking pan and season with salt and pepper. Bake, uncovered at 375 for 1 hour, turning over once. You can also grill or broil, instead of baking.
Judy (in Alaska)

This is a wonderful way to prepare chicken, and makes a great dish for a potluck, or company meal. This needs to be prepared the day before, so plan accordingly.

West Coast Chicken

1 tsp. salt (I cut down)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 tsp. ground ginger
4 tsp. low sodium soy sauce
5 lbs. chicken thighs, skin removed

Combine all ingredients except chicken. Spray two 11 x 7 inch pans with cooking spray (or grease). Place single layer of chicken in each pan and pour sauce over; cover pans. Refrigerator overnight. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 1 hour, basting once during baking.
