One of the best things I am able to report about the week is the rain! We have finally had rain! Our rain gauge measures about an inch and a half since late Tuesday afternoon! The garden is very happy! There is still a deficit for average rainfall at this point in the year, but the rain we have just received will definitely be a big help!
Here is one more chicken recipe that I know isn't new to you. It has been a favorite of mine for many years. The basic recipe comes from Betty Crocker from the early eighties.
|Out of the oven!|
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 cups thinly sliced celery
1 cup mayonnaise (I actually use less that this amount).
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds (I toasted these in a small skillet on the stove top.)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated onion
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 cup crushed potato chips (I didn't have chips, so used bread crumbs instead).
- Combine all ingredients except cheese and potato chips/crumbs. Pile into greased baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese and chips. Bake at 450 degrees F for10 to 15 minutes, or until bubbly. Serves 6. (We find it's possible to enjoy the leftovers unheated!) :-)
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
