BFS Assignment #105 - M'm M'm Good

Memory Verse: Psalms 13:6 NIV I will sing to the Lord, for He has been good to me.

Intro: M’m M’m Good (Campbell’s Soup)The fall is such a wonderful time of year. The beautiful foliage and cool, crisp morning air is such a wonderful change from the hot summer. I also love the M’m M’m good smell of fall cooking and baking. The wonderful fall veggies, fruits and Thanksgiving foods.

Assignment: Post your favorite fall recipe/recipes to share. I love trying new recipes, do you? It can be baking, main dishes, veggies, dessert or anything else you can think of. There are no limits. Mmmmmm..I can’t wait to take a look at some of those recipes.

Ok, first I will share a previous post from yesterday that has not one, but TWO soup recipes. Now, what says FALL like soup does?? Click right HERE.

Now for another fall favorite....

Cream Cheese Crockpot Chicken:

1 frying chicken, cut up

2 tbsp melted butter

salt and pepper to taste

1 package of dry Italian (good seasons) dressing mix

1 can cream of chicken soup

1-8 oz brick of cream cheese, cut up in cubes

1/2 C chicken broth

1 large onion

crushed garlic to taste

Brush chicken with butter and sprinkle with the dry Italian dressing mix (I did two layers in my crockpot to make sure that the Italian seasoning got on all the chicken and not just those pieces on top.) Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours. About 45 minutes before done, brown the onion in the butter and then add the cream cheese, soup, and chicken broth to the saucepan. Add the crushed garlic and stir all ingredients until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour sauce mixture over chicken in crockpot and cook an additional 30-45 minutes. Remove chicken to platter and stir sauce before putting in gravy boat.

Now...if you ever read a recipe I post on my blog you will most likely notice that I follow it up with comments on what I did!! hehe I have a hard time following a recipe. I think what I do makes it better, but you decide for yourself. Do not be afraid to experiment and make the recipe fit your family.

Ok, first off, I use 2 pounds boneless chicken breasts. Then when I am making the sauce I use the broth that has already gathered in the crockpot. If that does not measure out to be enough, then I will add some additional chicken broth. But in my mind, why add even more broth and water down the sauce. That flavor is just right in the broth that is already in the crockpot. Works wonderfully! I also spoil my family and quickly cut the cooked chicken breast up before I pour the sauce over it. The kids LOVE this recipe. We serve it all over noodles and Parmesan is put on the table for those that want it.

Preview Alert: The following picture is just the beginning of a fun project! Stay tuned for details.
