I chicken (cut up) or 6 chicken breast - I like bone-in breast for the bone adds flavor
1 package dried onion soup
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 lemon - juiced (2-3 Tbsp)
Mix all ingredients except the chicken in a large bowl. Add chicken pieces and gently turn pieces to coat with sauce. Place in baking pan which has been sprayed with cooking oil or lined with foil. Sprinkle with Cayenne pepper for heat and color. Adjust for your taste - a lot or a little.
Place in pre-heated, 350 degree oven for approximately 45 min. Turn after about 30 minutes to brown the other side. The chicken will be lightly browned when done.
Now that summer is gone, it is hard to get good tomatoes for our tossed salads. We eat lots of these so I have concocted this recipe for a salad without tomatoes and cucumbers.
After the Tomatoes are Gone - Salad
Prepare by the individual bowl or a large bowl
Spring mix lettuce
Sliced then diced apple
Thinly sliced carrots
Grated cheese - your choice but I like cheddar
Options: Sliced cauliflower, broccoli or broccoli slaw mix.
I slice the apple in vertical slices to have as much of the peel as I can. Slice these into thin strips and chop roughly or leave in thin strips. Thinly slice the carrot. Roughly chop the onion.
Fill the bowls with the lettuces and sprinkle with the apple, carrots, onion and grated cheese. Serve with your favorite dressing. A raspberry vinaigrette is especially good with it. I am going to add some mandarin oranges next time for I think that would be a good addition.
Ya'll enjoy and have a home cooked meal, get the family around the table, cut off the TV and have some good eating and family time. We uses to spend hours around the kitchen table just eating and talking and eating and drinking sweet, iced tea. Precious hours together and many good memories. The table is still there and we still gather to eat and talk and miss those gone on but treasure the memories.
