Four Foods on Friday



#1. How do you make chicken salad?
I actually don't make chicken salad, which is strange because I love salads. I make tuna and egg salad a lot.
#2. Fast food chicken. What fast food restaurant makes the best chicken?
Popeye's
#3. What’s your favorite way to eat chicken?
Roasted with lots of garlic.
#4. Share a recipe using chicken or take a picture of a chicken dish.
Country French Chicken Skillet

from: Quick Fixes from Brand Name Mixes

notes: I usually use more sour cream than the recipe calls for. I found that the sauce isn't as thick as Dustin and I would like with only 1/2 c sour cream. Adjust it to your tastes. I also sometimes use 1/2 c of white wine combined with 1/2 c water instead of the 1 c of water to give it more flavor. I also use whatever soup mix the store has (Lipton works well, too).

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 16 minutes

2 tbl margarine or butter
1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 c water
1 package KNORR Recipe Classics Vegetable or Spring Vegetable Soup, Dip, and Recipe Mix.
1/4 tsp dried dill weed (optional)
1/2 c sour cream

In a large skillet, melt margarine over medium-high heat and brown chicken, turning occasionally, 5 minutes.

Stir in water, recipe mix and dill weed. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove only chicken to serving platter, keep warm.

Remove skillet from heat; stir in sour cream. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve, if desired, with noodles.

Thanks for playing FFOF!
Stumbled.
Is the recipe much different with and without the dill weed?

You are the second person to mention Popeyes. I need to find one in my area.

Val - I don't think it would be dramatically different without the dill.

Karen - You should try Popeyes. I think they are much better than KFC. MHO, of course! :)

We used to eat Popeye's Chicken a lot until we found out they use lard to fry their chicken. No wonder it's so good! :)
