This is a good recipe to use when you have company and are using the oven for other cooking. This is done in 1 1/2 hours to 3 hours tops. I entered 2 hours as the cooking time because the description won't let you put in 1/2 hour times.
This dish is particularly good for pot luck or picnics. Prep time does not include cooking the chicken. I usually have pre-cooked chicken in my freezer. You can also cook in an oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it is one I like to use, especially in the summertime. It is easy to make-ahead, and it goes well with any Mediterranean dish. Prep time includes sitting for 2 hours.
This recipe comes from my niece. She is a teacher and loves to serve "quick and easy". This recipe will make about 12 servings, but you could cut it down if you like by using small cans of vegetables. You could also make it in a crockpot.
This salad is great, and you mix it up a day ahead of serving. It is for a large crowd, but you could cut the recipe in half. Prep time includes 12 hours in the refrigerator. This is from "Threadgill's, The Cookbook" by Eddie Wilson. A landmark grill in Austin.

This recipe is from the Kingfisher Restaurant in Tucson, Arizona. It is one of their signature and often requested recipes. This recipe makes enough for 20 people, but you can cut it in half. Prep time includes overnight soaking.
From the files of Winona Holt. I think this one dates back to the 50's, but it is still good today. No luncheon at the church was complete unless there were at least 10 different jello dishes. Prep time is an estimate and is the refrigeration time.
This is a fast and easy recipe for making herbal vinegars, using the herbs in your garden. Since the herbs oxidize extremly fast, it looks better if you use it right away. Since it is so simple you can make the vinegar anytime you need it. This recipe is from the recipe book Flavored Vinegars by Michael Chiarelle.
These little cakes are very good. If you like yours spicier, use more Cajun seasoning. They are delicious for dinner or even for breakfast. Excellent served with Ralph & Kacoo's Tarter Sauce or just lemon wedges.
