My grandmother gave me this recipe. It can easily be halved to feed less people. Also works great to freeze half and reheat later. When halving, I still use a whole can of Rotel. It makes it extra spicy and we love it!
First there was Rainy Day Cake...Then there was Rainy Day Soup...Now here's Rainy Day Casserole! No dull, dreary, wet day is bearable without something substantial to fortify you against the damp weather! Now it's made healthier than it's original version with the use of turkey-based sausage, no salt added tomatoes, 1% milk and whole wheat pasta!
This is good served with rice in place of the egg noodles. You can make this with boneless skinless chicken breasts, I have to say that it is better using the skin on chicken. You can add in 1/4 cup red wine, if you do then decrease the water by 1/4 cup.
LOVE fried chicken but hate to think of the calories and the mess? Here is a great recipe. It is the best non-fried chicken recipe that I've tasted. Chicken is battered
and breaded, but then baked instead of fried.
This dish is made simply with simple ingredients and a lot of love. My dinner guests and family get very satisfied looks on their faces and young children ask their moms to make this for them at home. I have made this dish with fresh oregano instead of and in combination with the rosemary and it was just as good. The fat from the chicken (schmaltz) flavors the potatoes. Cooking time really depends on the size of your chicken.
