    Ok, so I've REALLY gotten into cooking lately, now that I have more time. I'd love to hear some of your favorite recipes! :)

    Here's one that I did the other day that is mouth-watering:

    Caesar Chicken

    In ziplock bag, mix:
    3 Tbsp Olive Oil
    2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
    1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
    1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
    3/4 tsp. garlic salt
    1/8 tsp. pepper

    Add 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts and marinate for 15 min.

    On a plate:
    Mix 2/3 cup crushed croutons and 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese.

    Dredge chicken in crouton mixture. Place the chicken in a greased shallow baking pan; drizzle marinade on top. Bake at 400 degrees 20 min. or until cooked through

    *I used bone-in chicken (store was out of boneless) and cooked for 40 minutes.

    And another recipe I recently did that I got out of my new "Cooking with 4 ingredients" cookbook:

    Bacon Wrapped Chicken


    6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Halves
    1 8oz Carton Whipped Cream cheese w/onion and chives
    Margarine
    6 bacon strips

    ~Flatten chicken to 1/2" thickness. Spread 3T cream cheese over each

    ~Dot w/margarine and a little salt

    ~roll up. Wrap each w/a bacon strip.

    ~Place seam side down in a greased 9x13 baking dish.

    ~Bace uncovered @ 375 for 40-45 min or until juices run clear. To brown, broil 6 inches from heat fro about 3 minutes or until bacon is crisp.


    I liked the first better, Erik liked the second better, both were delicious though! Actually, I have pictures of both...in Clarinet's dinner time thread!

    Anyway...tonight I am making Shredded Pork with Mushrooms (Crock-Pot recipe)...if it turns out good, I'll post the recipe! :) Oh, and I'm trying yet another new recipe tommorrow. :)

    Ohhh yeah, forgot to PM you the Supreme Pie recipe. It is very very easy:
    Take one block of cream cheese (softened, but not melted!), place in a bowl, pour one can of sweetened condensed milk over it along with 1 tblspn of lemon juice and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Mix very well, making sure all lumps are out and that it is smooth and creamy. Pour into a Graham cracker crust and chill in the fridge for a couple of hours until firm.
    Top with any pie filling (Top with Lemon filling and it is a Lemon Supreme Pie - Top with Cherry filling and it is a Cherry Supreme Pie - haha, get it?)
    That is it, serve and enjoy. (You can also serve the topping seperately instead of putting it on top, for those who like variety or no topping at all)

    MMMM....sounds good Core.

    Here is a quick & easy one that we make every once in a while. Let's call it Big Mike's Chicken Casserole.

    In a big baking dish or small roaster, put in equal parts rice, cream of mushroom soup & water. Usually use one can of soup and use the can to measure rice & water (for a 2 person meal). Also, you add a can of mushroom pieces.

    Spice & add chicken. Could be anything. I've used boneless/skinless breast but legs & wings with the bones are often more tender. I like to use "Montreal Chicken" spice and garlic, but you could use a lot of things. Garlic is especially good with the mushroom.

    If you can completely cover the chicken with the broth, that's good. If not, I like to add some more spice on the exposed chicken parts.

    Sometimes I make a crust with Stove-top. Just mix with water and spread on top.

    Cover and cook at 350 for at least one hour, usually 90 minutes...or until liquid is gone (rice cooked but not burned).

    Another of my favorite recipes to make. We BOTH love this one.

    St Louis Toasted Ravioli

    2 tablespoons milk
    1 egg
    3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
    1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
    1/2 (25 ounce) package frozen cheese ravioli, thawed
    3 cups vegetable oil for frying
    1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
    1 (16 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

    Combine milk and egg in a small bowl.

    Place breadcrumbs and if desired, salt in a shallow bowl.

    Dip ravioli in milk mixture, and coat with breadcrumbs.

    In a large saucepan, heat marinara sauce over medium heat until bubbling. Reduce the heat to simmer.

    In a large heavy pan, pour oil to depth of 2 inches. Heat oil over medium heat until a small amount of breading sizzles and turns brown.

    Fry ravioli, a few at a time, 1 minute on each side or until golden.

    Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately with hot marinara sauce.

    Honestly though, this is one of those recipes that after you make it once, you never need to look at the recipe again...it's so easy, and nothing at all requires an exact measurement really.

    Homemade quesadillas (my own recipe)

    Ingredients:
    1 small chicken breast
    Onions and jalepeños (or green peppers) to taste
    Salsa to taste
    1 burrito size tortilla
    Plenty of equal parts shredded cheddar and monterray jack cheese

    Spices:
    Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, Ms. Dash Extra Spicy, garlic powder

    Instructions:
    1. cut the chicken into small pieces and saute in olive oil.
    2. sprinkle cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, Ms. Dash, and garlic powder over chicken to taste while it cooks.
    3. When chicken is half done, add chopped onions and peppers (jalepeño or green) to taste (please don't do the Yankee thing and add as many veggies as chicken...)
    5. Begin heating a pancake griddle
    4. Saute until chicken is done, and add salsa (just enough to completely coat the pieces upon stirring)
    5. butter the griddle, and place a large tortilla covered in the cheeses on it.
    6. Put the chicken/vegetable mixture onto half of the tortilla, and wait for cheese to melt
    7. Fold in half, butter the empty side of the griddle, and slide the quesadilla over.
    8. Cook until light brown, and repeat step 7 for the other side.
    9. Cut and eat. mmm.....

    Well done, but you forgot the olives and tomatoes. Oh, and the lettuce and sour cream you put on afterwards!

    Olives!? are you mad, woman!? Since when did olives grow anywhere near Mexico? keep them away from Mexican food.

    This is why you don't trust Yankees with Mexican food...
