Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

8 oz cream cheese
½ c. Parmesan
½ c. butter

 ½ milk

1 cup cooked shredded chicken (I added garlic powder, lemon and herb seasoning and pepper to the chicken, just a little of each).

Fettuccine noodles

Combine top 3 ingredients over med-high heat until they melt then add ½ c. or more milk depending on how thick you like it.

Stir in the spices which are 1 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder. (That is what I did. You can add more or less according to your taste). 

Cook your fettuccine noodles.

Thaw and heat up chicken in the microwave.  Pour Alfredo sauce over cooked fettuccine noodles, top with chicken, and serve with veggie side of your choice and bread sticks.

Bon Appetit!

Breakfast Casserole

Frozen Shredded Hashbrowns
10 eggs
1 cup milk (not provided)
3 T sour cream
1 T Lowery's seasoning
Whatever toppings you would like (I have included sausage, green peppers and onions)

Grease 9x13 casserole dish. Spread frozen hashbrowns along bottum and up the sides. Layer your toppings. Sprinkle with cheese. (as much as you like) Mix together well 10 eggs, 1 cup milk, 3 T sour cream and 1 T lowerys. Pour over cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes. THe oringinal recipe calls for 45 minutes, but my oven will burn by then. Just as long as the eggs are cooked and the top is slightly brown. To make this quicker, you can put it all together the night before. It is yummy leftovers as well. Enjoy!

Creamy Zesty Italian Chicken

3-4 Chicken Breasts
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 Package Zesty Italian Dressing Mix
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Cube (8 oz) Cream Cheese

Put frozen chicken in crock pot. Melt butter and drizzle over chicken. Sprinkle the zesty Italian dressing mix over the top. Cook 3-4 hours on high or 5-7 on low (crock pots vary). A half hour before done add cream cheese and cream of mushroom soup (I usually cut the cream cheese in half and soften it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and mix it with the cream of mushroom soup before I add it to the crock pot). Remove from heat and shred chicken with a fork and knife. Serve over rice.
