I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
When my Mom cooked she used every pot and pan in the house.
For one meal.
Today I cooked a casserole that was definitely a salute to my Mom’s methods of cooking.
A 13×9 pan. A bowl (to mix milk and soup) and a whisk and a measuring cup. A saucepan (to make stuffing) and a spoon to dish it out. A cutting board (and ceramic knife).
Okay – not every pot and pan, but it sure felt that way when I was cleaning up.
But it was tasty – and no, I didn’t take any pictures.
I’m a tired fat old lady.
If you want to mess up your kitchen here’s the recipe:
CHICKEN CORDON BLEU BAKE
6 oz package stuffing mix ¼ t seasoning salt
10.75 oz can cream of chicken soup ½ # sliced deli ham cut into 1-inch strips
¼ C milk 2 C shredded Swiss cheese
4 C cubed cooked chicken
Preheat 350 º grease 13×9 pan
Prepare stuffing mix according to directions; whisk together soup and milk
Toss chicken with seasoning salt; put in bottom of baking pan. Layer with ham, Swiss cheese, soup mixture and stuffing.
Bake, covered 30 minutes. Uncover; bake until cheese is melted (additional 10-15 minutes).
I’ll talk more about what wore out my fat old ass next week.
If I remember.
The photo below was posed by professional food (and it looks more orange because the original recipe calls for 1/2 C Swiss cheese and 1 1/2 C cheddar – and I’m, like, since when do you use cheddar in Cordon Bleu Chicken?)
