Dinner Tonight: Swiss Chicken & Blue Cheese Mashed

Got an hour? This is a great dinner if you’ve got just a little bit of time. I, personally, had a few lbs of potatoes I needed to get rid of and a box of stuffing in the pantry that has been there since Thanksgiving!

Recipe: Swiss Baked Chicken
Recipe From: The Lima News (many years ago)

Ingredients:

6-8 Bonelss, Skinless Chicken Breasts
6-8 Swiss Cheese Slices
1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/4 c. Dry White Wine
1 Box Stuffing (I used Chicken Flavor)
4 tbsp. melted butter
Fresh Mushrooms (optional)

Pre-heat oven 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 baking dish & line chicken breasts along the bottom.
Layer slices of swiss cheese on top of chicken.
In a separate bowl, whisk together cream of chicken with white wine &  spread over chicken & cheese.
Cover the top with stuffing mix and drizzle with melted butter. I also topped with fresh mushrooms.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until chicken is done!

N found what is called a “wine cube” at Target the other day. They are like wine juice boxes! One little cube is equal to 2 bottles of wine (and only $9.99!). So one “juice box” is 1/2 a bottle. Amazing, huh? Those bottles seem like they hold much more! These are perfect for cooking considering you usually only need a little wine… you can drink the rest of course! 🙂

Recipe: Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes
Recipe From: Food Network

Ingredients:

2 lbs. potatoes
3/4 c. heavy cream
4 tbsp. butter
4 oz. blue cheese crumbles
S & P

(5 ingredients, HOLLAAA!)

Peel & quarter potatoes. Place in stock pot, cover with cold water, add salt & boil over high heat.
After boil, cook on medium heat until fork tender. Drain and return to pot.
Meanwhile, melt butter in small pot along with heavy cream until hot. Add blue cheese crumbles, stir until all melted together.
Add cream mixture to potatoes & mash (add more cream or milk if needed). Season with S & P.
Bonus: I had a block of asiago cheese in the fridge — I shredded just a little of that into the hot potatoes… added one more yummy flavor!

These potatoes are SO EASY and a nice change from the old plain mashed pots!
Dessert? Why, leftover Monster Cookies of course!
