chic_dumplin_bakeIf You Have A Thing For Chicken And Dumplings, You’re Going To Love This Scrumptious Bake!

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Swanson chicken stock or broth

1 chicken bouillon cube (use 2 if using unsalted butter AND low-sodium stock/broth)

Non-stick spray

1/4 cup (half of a stick) Land O’ Lakes butter, melted
 
2 – 3 cups of cooked shredded or cubed chicken

2 cups Bisquick

1 1/2 cups McArthur milk

1 can Campbell’s cream of chicken soup

1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (allow to thaw for 30 minutes before using)

Pepper

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Warm chicken stock in a small sauce pan and add in the bouillon cube to dissolve. Keep warm until ready to use.

Lightly coat with non-stick spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish or a 12? round casserole dish. Pour in the melted butter.

Layer the shredded chicken on top of the butter. Sprinkle on the vegetables. Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the Bisquick and milk. (It’s okay if there are a few lumps remaining.)

Pour over the chicken and vegetables. DO NOT MIX! Sprinkle on some black pepper. Set aside.

Combine the cream of chicken soup with the warmed stock.

Once blended, slowly pour over the Bisquick layer. Again, DO NOT MIX!

(It’ll looks like a big, soupy mess. This is normal.)
 
If using a 9 x 13 pan, bake for 40 – 45 minutes or until casserole is set and top is lightly browned. If using a large, round dish, bake for 50 – 55 minutes or until casserole is set and lightly browned.

Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve.

Ingredients
• 2 tablespoons Bertolli olive oil
• 2 cloves garlic, crushed and finely chopped
• 1/4 teaspoon McCormick crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
• 6 Tyson skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
• 2 cups Prego prepared marinara sauce
• 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
• 1 (8 ounce) package Sargento shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
• 1/2 cup Sargento grated Parmesan cheese, divided
• 1 (5 ounce) package Pepperidge garlic croutons

Instructions
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.Coat the bottom of a 9×13 inch casserole dish with olive oil, and sprinkle with garlic and hot red pepper flakes.
3.Arrange the chicken breasts in bottom of the dish, and pour marinara sauce over chicken. Sprinkle basil over marinara sauce, and top with half the mozzarella cheese, followed by half the Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle on the croutons, then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese.
4.Bake in preheated oven until cheese and croutons are golden brown and the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 35 minutes to an hour, depending on the shape and thickness of your chicken breasts. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chicken breast should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

spinach_ham_swiss_pie

These little pies are perfect for a light lunch with a small salad or cup of soup. If you prefer, feel free to substitute broccoli for the spinach.
Difficulty: Medium
Hands-on: 25 minutes
Total: 2 hours 25 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients
4 oz. frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
8 oz. sliced ham, roughly chopped
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (4 oz.)
2 eggs, divided
¼ tsp. ground cayenne pepper
⅛ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 large egg, beaten
2½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
12 Tbsp. butter, cubed and chilled
¼ cup vegetable shortening, chilled

Directions

Step 1
In a medium bowl, combine the spinach, ham, cheese, 1 egg, cayenne pepper, and nutmeg. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
Step 2
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt. With your fingers, rub the chilled butter and shortening into the flour mixture until 30 percent of the fat is between pea-sized and hazelnut-sized, while the rest is blended well. Add ¼ cup ice water and mix until the dough forms a ball. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed.
Step 3
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 4 even balls. Form each ball into a disc. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least 30 minutes.
Step 4
Heat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly beat remaining egg in a small bowl.
Step 5
Remove dough from the refrigerator and let sit for 10 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll each disc of dough into an 8" round. Place about ⅓ cup filling onto the pastry slightly off center, brush the edges of the pastry with beaten egg, and fold the dough over the filling. Pinch or crimp with a fork to seal. Place the pies on the prepared baking sheet and brush with beaten egg. With scissors or a sharp paring knife, cut vents in pastry so that steam can escape.
Step 6
Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350°F and bake for an additional 25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and juices are bubbling. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
