Fall Is Coming!!!
I live in Florida. It gets hot here, and the hot tends to last through what is fall in almost all of the rest of the United States. My Facebook feed is liberally sprinkled with posts from my friends who have broken out their boots and sweaters, and are turning on their heaters and fireplaces. Not here, my friends! It is still so warm and humid here that the fall leaves wreath I hung on my front door a few weeks ago has started to grow mildew. Ugh!
However, Fall is in the air! It is 7:00 p.m. right now, and we just got back from a walk around the lake in our neighborhood. It is a pleasant 76 degrees outside, and I came back from the walk without a drop of perspiration on me! For a Floridian, this is a sure sign that fall is coming!!!
That said, here's a nice fall recipe for you. I made it for dinner tonight, and my crew joyfully devoured it and declared it their new favorite meal!
Melt one stick of butter.
1 package of Italian dressing mix
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 can golden mushroom soup
4 ounces cream cheese
Mix until melted and smooth
Place 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (or 8 tenderloins) in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Serve over mashed potatoes (our favorite) or pasta.
I forgot to put the chicken in the crock pot, so I had to improvise. I boiled the chicken until no pink was showing. Then I added it to the sauce that I had prepared in a skillet. I covered the skillet and let the chicken cook on low for about 30 minutes. It was fabulous, and we can't wait to have it again!
