When it’s 105º F. outside, this is a perfect dish for entertaining. Easy to prepare, and easy to serve as a “make-it-your-way” one-dish meal. And Fritos work better in this dish than “real” tortilla chips.
A different version of a popular favorite. (At least, I didn't see it in a fairly thorough search through the Recipezaar.) I don't know the original source of the recipe, but it's been in our family for over forty years. A bit more expensive, perhaps, and a bit more complicated to prepare, but worth every cent and every minute!
This recipe came to me in a cookbook published as a fund-raiser by the faculty of the school where I taught. I've used it for thirty years or so, making so many changes along the way that it is now truly "my" recipe. Enjoy!
Old family recipe, so simple that guests refuse to believe that I'm not hiding some secret ingredient! Removing the skin from the chicken greatly reduces the fat content, but the chicken is moist and tasty, with a lovely brown crust. It's labor intensive, but worth every minute!
This recipe was the one my mother used, and her mother before her. Beyond that I can't go! It spoiled me for anything calling itself "cornbread" that has flour or sweeteners in it -- I call those "corn cake." This is great with chili, stew, and other hearty dishes. My dad used to crumble it up into buttermilk and eat it with a spoon. It's a requirement for our family's New Years Day dinner, along with the roast pork and black-eyed peas. It's also the main ingredient in Thanksgiving/Christmas/anytime turkey stuffing.
This came from my mother-in-law via my wife. It's always been a family favorite, especially in cool/cold weather. It does require a pressure cooker, but I believe more people should learn to cook with one. It's fast! And it makes one of the tougher cuts of beef into a melt-in-your-mouth comfort food.
I've never seen any written directions that I know of. Just experiment a little and you'll come up with your own!
