Recipe Month

The recipe below, is one I use at Christmas using left-over turkey instead of a fresh chicken. I usually slightly under-cook my turkey, this way when re-heating or adding to another recipe, it is not too dry.

Creamed Chicken

5 lb. chicken
1 large onion
1 large green pepper
½ lb. mushrooms
2 cloves of crushed garlic
1 teaspoon paprika
Salt and pepper
1 tin condensed mushroom soup (do not dilute)
White sauce
A little white wine
A little fresh cream

Roast chicken and leave it a little undercooked. Do this early in the day or night before.
Slice onion and green pepper, sauté in a little butter for approx. 10 minutes with the crushed garlic. Add sliced mushrooms and sauté for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Remove all the meat from the chicken; don’t use the skin, cut into reasonable bite size pieces, not too small.
Place in a casserole dish, add onions, green pepper, garlic, mushrooms and condensed soup. Add paprika, salt and pepper and mix together.

Make a white sauce:
1 oz. butter
2 oz. flour
Make the sauce fairly thick.
Stir sauce into the chicken mixture. Cook at 350 degrees for 30 minutes with the lid on.
Remove lid and cook for another 30 minutes at 200 degrees.
Ten minutes before serving, add a glass of white wine and a little fresh cream.

I usually serve the above with rice.

Savory Rice

Add to cooked rice, 1 cup of diced cooked ham and ½ cup of cooked sliced mushrooms. Sprinkle with a little paprika.

A friend gave it to me years ago, it is still a favorite.

She was a chef and taught some evening classes. I was the happy recipient of some great recipes that year:))

I remember this basic dish from when I was a kid. My mom didn't make it, but friends mom's did. I wanna try it. :)

Hey. What is this thing y'all are doing? Is it a group of friends on LJ deciding month by month share topics?

Probably a lot of cool recipes I'm not seeing...

Is someone going to compile them into an LJ slashers (or whatever the group is) cookbook? Maybe a pdf. That'd be cool. :)

It is amazing how recipes keep turning up in slightly different form *g* I am glad you found this one again:)

Sorry hit comment before I was finished!!

I have no idea how it started but yes, someone started the "theme months", I guess, would be a way to put it.

November is recipes and I think December is Christmas baking.

Most are locked lj's I am afraid, I have no idea about collecting them in one and wouldn't have a clue, on how to create a pdf. Will have to think about that.

It is just a fun thing, like movie and music month:))

Yeah, I think I went hunting for a recipe a while ago and found the post locked. Meant to ask if I could be friended to have a peek, but then got distracted by other stuff. Someday I'm going to have to calm my life the hell down. (right. I'd just fill it back up again).

Bet someone in your group (especially if they are writers) would know how to do that.

Looking forward to the baking, and yes, I'm remembering the music and the poetry and the movies. :) It's a cool idea.

It is a very loose idea, not everyone is on all the lj's. I am sure no-one would have a problem adding you:))

As I was standing here, trying to decide what to add to my shopping list for meals for next week, I was thinking you could post the idea to your lj and start lots of new recipes flowing:))
