The original recipe was given to me by a co-worker when I first moved to Texas & has remained my favorite simple chicken dish for 15 years. Rayann's recipe calls for a whole chicken but I just use the breasts. Just add some hot cornbread and, boy hidee, dinner's ready.
Risotto is THE ultimate comfort food, it's like being hugged by your dinner. You can make do with a spoon and don't even need to bother with proper grown-up cutlery.
A bowl of this can (almost) make everything better again when your down.
I must admit, I find it really hard to make anything without chilies and garlic, which is probably why I don't make many desserts really. This is a great spicy, savoury mash, and it isn't too bad fat-wise either. Use a flavoured cream cheese or greek yogurt if you prefer
Mrs. Hayden was a patient of mine when I was fresh out of college and in my first job. As a widow, she was lonely so I visted her often. She always baked something when she knew I was going to drop by. My daughter Shanna started cooking when she was 12 and this was her favorite foolproof sweet. It brings back many sweet memories.
These little appetizers are so good! We really loved the dipping sauce and I can't wait to try it with some shrimp and scallops also. If you can't find the panko, feel free to use plain breadcrumbs as I did. Recipe is from Southern Living April 2006.
When I saw this recipe in the April 2006 issue of Southern Living, I simply had to try it. It looks like you spent a lot of time preparing it, but the recipe actually cooks up very quickly. Serve with potatoes or rice and a salad...voila, dinner is ready in about 40 minutes.
