Greetings to all you lovely bloggers that have ventured or stumbled upon my blog today. I’m so glad that you are here.
Did everyone get a chance to check out and/or partake in yesterday’s The Great Fundraising Act? Oh my gosh, there were some amazing items to bid on. Over $26,000 was raised on behalf of Susan, a truly amazing Canadian blogger behind The Great Balancing Act. She was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and has quite the battle and medical bills ahead of her. My thoughts go out to her and her family during this difficult time in their lives.
Now on to food...
Last night I decided to make something with chicken. And that’s how my chicken bake came to be. Sometimes I really do enjoy making things that are simple, especially on busy nights.
- 1/3 cup Gluten-free flour mix (or all-purpose)
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 3 chicken breasts
- 1 can cream of Wild Mushroom and Garlic Soup
- 1 cup Non-fat Greek yogurt
- 6 fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 2/3 cup shredded cheese of your choice
Set the oven to 350F. Combine your flour, salt, paprika and pepper in a ziplock bag. Shake the chicken, one at a time, in the flour mixture. (remember to shake off the excess flour).
In a large frying pan, brown the chicken on all sides. Place them in a baking dish large enough to hold them all. In the same pan, sauté the mushrooms and pepper until tender. Spread over the chicken.
In a small bowl, combine the soup and yogurt. Pour over the chicken and vegetables.
Bake for 1 hour until the chicken is tender. Sprinkle the casserole with cheese and return it to the oven until the cheese is just melted and a little brown. ( I didn’t have enough, but oh well).
Serve with a tossed salad or over some rice or gluten-free rice noodles.
This casserole can even be prepared the night before. Just refrigerate it and when you get home from a long day at the office or after running the kids to swimming, soccer or hockey practices, just pop it in the oven and get ready to enjoy.
Bon appetite! Back soon.
