My dad asked me a while ago if I still had his jerky recipe. Apparently, I do. It's awfully simple, but you get to taste the actual meat rather than some other flavours I've had where the meat is secondary to what it was treated with. How many servings is a guess, since it depends on how much you eat, and how much you made. I based it on getting four servings out of a pound, and making ten pounds.
I was bored one day, and standing in front of the spice cupboard knowing I had defrosted chicken breasts. This actually came out much better than expected. Measurements are pretty close, but I wasn't really measuring when I made it. Prep time includes marinating time.
I got this from a friend, who won a contest with it on the site I moderate. I've adapted it slightly to match our tastes, but the basic recipe is still hers. Not something you can eat all the time or your cholesterol will go through the roof, but they're really, really tasty.
I was assigned the "cheese and crackers" duty for the family parties last year, and this one was one of three everyone wanted the recipe for. Originally it came from a checkout-lane cookbook, but I adapted it some and we like it better.
I've had this recipe kicking around the drawer for years, and finally got around to making it. Pretty good, and something different to do when you get "Oh, we're having chicken again?" from the family.
This is another one of those recipes I found handwritten on the back of an envelope in my junk drawer, so it could've come from anywhere. It's a nice change of pace from just sauteeing summer squash in butter, and it's simple and quick for when it's really too hot to cook.
This one works very well for making the night before (cover and refrigerate before baking); increase the cooking time slightly or take it out to warm up for about a half hour before baking. Sausage or other meat is optional.
This is another one I got from my good online friend and co-moderator, the man known as Ralf Kramden. I've adapted it just a little to suit our tastes, but the basic recipe is his. It's pretty easy, and one of those things the family wants at every gathering. Prep time is a guess, since it depends on how quickly you can chop the olives, cook time is refrigeration.
I think this one came from the first cookbook my mom ever bought me, I've made it ever since I was about ten years old. Easy, cheap, and good tasting. You can substitute onion soup for the celery soup, and use onion salt instead of soup mix if you want and it'll taste just fine (discovered that when I was out of them).
I have no idea where I got this one, it just showed up handwritten in my junk drawer. It's a nice change of pace from everything one normally does with chicken breasts, and my family thinks it's tasty.
