Frozen Breaded Chicken Tenders
16 oz Jar Spaghetti Sauce
8 oz Thin Spaghetti
1 cup Shredded Mozzarella or Italian Cheese
1/2-3/4 Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Preheat oven to 375. Place frozen breaded Chicken Tenders in a skillet sprayed with non stick spray over medium heat...watch carefully and turn 2 or 3 times. Put in rectangle casserole dish and pour spaghetti sauce over chicken, cover with the cheeses then cover with aluminum foil and put in oven for 30-35 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 5 minutes. While the dish is baking put water on to boil (about 6 cups with tablespoon of olive oil and tsp salt added). When water begins to boil...Add dry spaghetti (I break it in 2 as I put in the water). Turn burner down to medium and cook until spaghetti is as tender as you prefer. Serve the Parmesan Chicken over a generous portion of spaghetti and a slice of garlic toast.
You can't get much simpler than this...Pork n Kraut cooked in the crock pot. Before you turn your nose up to kraut...have it fixed this way first! The kraut seasons the pork and the pork seasons the kraut, making a tasty dish.
1 package meaty country pork ribs
1 can kraut
salt and lots of pepper to taste
Put package of ribs in crock pot adding some salt and pepper and cook on high for an hour. Turn down to low and cook for a couple of hours. Add can of kraut and continue to cook on low for another hour. Told you it was easy. We fix mashed potatoes and black eyed peas to serve with this dish. Good Southern Cooking at it's best!
You'd be surprised to find out how many don't know how to make tuna salad. I have added pictures that show the steps pretty simply and the ingredients plus directions.

- 1/2 medium onion chopped
- 1 large kosher dill pickle chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup light mayo (according to taste)
- White or wheat sandwich bread - toasted if wanted.
- Drain water off cans of tuna and place in mixing bowl
- In a sauce pan cover 4 eggs with water and bring to a boil. Turn down to medium to low heat and cover and boil for 10 minutes. Run cold water over eggs until cool enough to peel off shell...rinse and coarsely chop.
- Add remaining ingredients (except bread of course) and stir thoroughly (start with less mayo and add more as you feel is needed.
- Put a generous portion on sandwich bread and serve with soup and/or chips.
One of the most sought after recipes on my site is the Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Foil Packets. More than half a million people (I promise it's true) have been there and many have shared their success in making it. Hobos in a Foil Packet is a recipe that I have made for my growing family for years. It is an excellent meal for camping trips or just those "in a hurry" nights. You can use ground beef or ground turkey and the clean up is a breeze.
1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey)
4 small to medium potatoes
1 onion sliced
Preheat oven to 350. Tear off 4 pieces of foil and spray with Canola Oil Spray. Evenly divide the pound of ground beef or turkey and flatten into a patty on each sheet of foil. Add Salt and pepper to taste. Add slices of onion divided as shown in the picture below. Lightly salt and pepper.
Next add peeled and thinly sliced potato (one per packet) - salt and pepper to taste. Then final layer is the carrot that has been peeled and thinly sliced (one carrot or more per each packet.) Again salt and pepper to taste. Roll up the foil around the meat and vegetables to seal and place on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Take out of oven and Puncture the top of the foil to let out the steam on each packet.
Hobos baked and ready to plate
As you can see...it makes a beautiful plateful of food! And tastes as good as it looks!
