C is for Cooking with Clenna

I missed you kids!

How was your weekend?

Busy? Fun? Relaxing?

How about a report!?! ๐Ÿ™‚


Today, I have a recipe that Clenna discovered.

Sounds good and economical, so it’s a great tie-in to last week’s discussion on “ways to save money”.

As I was preparing this post, it struck me as a great topic to use for the letter C in my ABC-Along series!

C is for Cooking a Chicken Casserole with Clenna! ๐Ÿ˜€

Chicken Casserole


1 pkg. macaroni and cheese dinner ($1.50)

2 cup chicken (I had on hand from a prior time.)

1 can cream of chicken soup (.50)

1 1/2 cup chicken broth ($1)

1 T. onion flakes (in pantry)

1 can french fried onion rings ($2)

2 T. butter (in fridge)


Combine macaroni and cheese dinner, chicken, cream of chicken soup, onion flakes, pepper flakes and chicken broth in 2-quart casserole. Microwave on full power 16 minutes, covered. Stir once. Rest, covered for 5 minutes. Add butter and mix well. Top with onion rings.

Thanks, Clenna! ๐Ÿ˜€



Clenna Cooks

italianborderClenna is one of the regular readers here on the blog and she often surprises me with a book suggestion or a recipe!

In fact, even her Dear Hubby cut-out a recipe from the paper a while back and Clenna kindly sent it along. (It’s in the recipe box on the right, under the heading: “What’s for Dinner”.)

Here’s her very latest. She says she can’t take credit; she found it on the internet, but this Gal has a knack for scouting out recipes that are good plus easy-peasy!

And when you think about it… isn’t that the best kind of recipe? ๐Ÿ˜€

Cranberry Chicken

4 skinless/boneless chicken breasts
1 8 oz. bottle of Catalina Dressing
1 package dry onion soup mix
1- 1 lb can whole berry cranberry sauce

Mix together dressing, onion soup mix and cranberry sauce. Place chicken with cranberry sauce mixture in greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees hour 1 to 1 ยฝ hours uncovered. Or place in the Crock Pot on low for 8 hours.


Thanks Clenna!
