Chicken Anyone??

And now for that promised recipe from earlier this week..that even qualified as leftovers. And one additional one just because I thought it was so yummy. Both of these are from Southern Livings from earlier this year.....Southern Living magazines are some of my favorite sources for new recipes! I hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

Chicken Tetrazzini with Prosciutto and Peas

1 (7oz) package vermicelli (or thin spaghetti)
3 ounces finely chopped prosciutto
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10oz) container refrigerated Alfredo sauce
1 (4oz) can sliced mushrooms, drained (I so left these out!)
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 cup frozen baby English peas, thawed
1/2 cup slivered almonds

1. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
2. Saute prosciutto in 2 tsp hot vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp.
2. Meanwhile, stir together chicken, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and next six ingredients; stir in pasta.
3. Stir in prosciutto and baby English peas. Spoon mixture into lightly greased 11X7 baking dish. Sprinkle with almonds and remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
4. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until bubbly.

Its that easy!!

  8. Jennifer, After you asked me, I tried to email you my email address but it kept coming back undeliverable?

    So, here it is

    Sorry it took me so long to tell you that the email address you sent me wasn't working.

    Your post about your mama's cookbook was so touching,...it made me think of both my mom and my mom-in-law. I was really thinking of them yesterday on Mother's Day.

    I hope today will be filled with God's blessings in your life!
