Sunday Dinner

One of my favorite things to do is make Sunday lunch for my family. During the school year, my parents invite college students over for a home cooked meal; so that makes it even better. Because they are moving, we haven't had anyone over this summer. But that doesn't me WE don't need to eat. One of our all time favorites is chicken breast supreme. Although I know how to make this, and have done it before, Mama is usually the cook on this one. It is a GREAT meal to serve on Sunday, in that it cooks while you're at church.

Chicken Breast Supreme
8 chicken breasts (this is a LOT of chicken, we don't usually use this much)
1 package chipped beef or 4 oz dried beef
8 slices bacon (we use turkey bacon)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (we use 98% fat free)
1/2 pint sour cream (1 cup) (I sometimes use yogurt)

Line 13 X 9 pan with chipped beef.

Place chicken on top of beef and bacon on top of chicken. Mix soup and sour cream. Pour over chicken and bake in 275 F degree oven for 3 hours. If you want a very soupy sauce, cover with aluminum foil. I think the ideal method would be 1.5 hours covered, 1.5 hours uncovered. This makes for a very moist piece of chicken.

Serve with rice, vegetable, and fruit. This week we have fresh green beans (just cook in water with bullion), white rice (I prefer brown), and watermelon (YUMMY!).

I want you to know I don't normally comment on chicken recipes, but I'll make an exception for this one. My wife has been making the exact same stuff for 30 years! Exactly!

We call it "That Chicken" .. she also has a different recipe called "This Chicken" as well as one for "The Chicken".

She has a recipe for oatmeal cake ... one man paid $240 for one of them at a church silent auction. It's THAT good. The longer the leftovers sit, the "fudgier" they get. I'd be happy to email it to you if you'd like to add it to your repertoire.

Excuse me. I need to go home and preheat the oven.
