While doing errands on Saturday afternoon, I made a stop in Homeland (a small grocery store). In wondering what to make for dinner (and I do this a lot…the wondering part), I remembered I had some chicken in the freezer. What happens frequently is that I stop there….I mean, it’s chicken. It’s not that hard to pair it with something. Nevertheless, I pulled out my Blackberry and typed in one of my favorite meals, Chicken Tetrazzini. I’m an intelligent person…surely I can handle this. I grabbed the items the recipe called for and I made my way to the check out. I had called my Mom when this idea first started swirling in my head. I never heard back from her so I was on my own. This is not usually a good thing. But, I persevered….in other words, I had all the ingredients and figured ‘what the hell.’ I got home and unloaded the groceries. I kept my Blackberry close by so I could refer to the recipe often and easily.
First, I boiled the spaghetti…..
Next, I shredded/diced up the chicken (my version of “cubing”)
After the pasta was done cooking, I put in strainer and left in sink. The next step was to mix 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, water, and 2 cubes of chicken bouillon together until it boils. I transferred the pasta to a glass pan and then added the chicken. Lastly, I poured the soup concoction over the meat and noodles and finished by sprinkling cheddar cheese all over the top. I set the oven to 350 and when it was ready to bake, I slipped the pan inside. I have to say that by this time, no smoke alarms had gone off (yes, it’s been known to happen when I cook) and the meal in the oven looked downright edible.
And we have the end product…..
I may have to try this cooking thing more often…..
