Food Reviews

Really good. I added chicken and mandarin oranges and I left the noodles crunchy. I've been buying rotisserie chickens at Costco about once a week. It makes making chicken dishes so easy and I can get three meals from one chicken, which for $4.99 is a great deal AND I don't have to deal with raw chicken, which I hate.

Baked Southwest Eggrolls with a Chipotle Dipping sauce
I didn't really follow this recipe at all, but I used the idea of it to make my own baked egg rolls. Definite success. Here's what I did:

First, I sauteed a white onion with garlic, a little butter, lemon juice, cumin and chili powder. I added some black beans, shredded rotisserie chicken, shredded cheese, fresh corn which I cooked and then cut off of the cob. And then I baked it according to the directions. I make the dipping sauce with sour cream, a little salsa and cumin. And then I make fresh guacamole to go with it.

It was a hit. All four members of my family ate it. Hallelujah. It is so rare I cook anything that Ian and the kids with eat.

Sour Cream Noodle Bake
I really loved it, but if you don't like cottage cheese than it is not for you (which unfortunately Ian is not).

White Chicken Enchilladas
So good and so easy. And very few ingredients which I love about any dish.

Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Noodles
It was just okay. I didn't use cream, which may have been my problem. I used milk and made a roux. I have more new recipes in my queue for the next week, so more reviews to come.

BTW...The links for the other recipes are two posts down. Also, when I make any recipe, I always half it. It usually works out to be just enough for Ian and I.

I'm impressed that you can get 3 meals out of one chicken. We go through almost half while I am pulling it apart. ;)
