Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
4 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.
2 oz of mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon chicken flavored bouillon
1 teaspoon parsley
1/4 cup of fine breadcrumbs
1 medium beaten egg
salt and pepper to taste
Make a long incision in each chicken breast and sprinkle the mozzarella inside. Secure the incision with a toothpick or string. Place the chicken breasts into a baking dish and brush each piece with the beaten egg. Mix the remaining ingredients together and sprinkle over the chicken. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees F.
2 (8 ounce) blocks of cream cheese
1/2 cups relish
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar
2 teaspoons finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (slivered almonds work especially well)
Mix together everything but the nuts. Shape the mass into a ball and roll in the nuts so that it is completely coated. Place in an air-tight container or wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
Cheddar 'n Crab Meat Casserole
12 oz Crab meat
3 oz grated cheddar
3/4 cup skimmed milk powder
3 tablespoons of plain flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1 cup water
In a small pot mix the flour, mustard and milk powders, and salt and pepper. Add the water slowly—be sure to mix continuously as the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese until melted. Add the crab meat. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees F until thoroughly cooked.
