1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup Original Bisquick mix
1/2 cup milk
1 egg


Heat oven to 400. Mix vegetables, chicken and soup in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate.

Chicken Cordon Bleu


1/4 cup chicken broth
5 teaspoons melted butter
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon grated fresh parmigiano-reggiano cheese
4  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 thin slices prosciutto
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350.

Microwave broth for 20 seconds. Stir in butter, garlic, breadcrumbs and parmigiano-reggiano and set aside.

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of wax paper and pound each to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt, oregano, and pepper. Top each breast half with 1 slice of prosciutto and 1 tablespoon mozzarella, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place rolls, seam side down, in a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour remaining broth mixture over chicken. Bake for 30 minutes.


Chicken & Dumplings


1 chicken
2 tsp salt
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk


Cut up chicken and place in deep pot, barely cover with water, add salt and simmer until meat is tender.

Debone chicken and set aside; reserve the broth.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening. Add milk to make a stiff dough. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness on floured board. Cut into 1-inch squares, and sprinkle with flour. Drop into briskly boiling chicken stock.

Cover tightly and simmer gently for 35 minutes. Add meat and enjoy.
