QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” —Helen Keller
TRIED AND TASTED RECIPE
3 cups cooked, shredded chicken 2 cups chicken broth 1 10-ounce can cream of chicken soup 1 cup self-rising flour 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted 1 cup buttermilk, well shaken
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Put the chicken in a 2-quart casserole dish. Combine the broth and soup in a medium saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Pour the broth mixture over the chicken. In a separate medium bowl, mix the flour with the pepper. Stir in the melted butter and the buttermilk. Pour this mixture over the casserole and smooth the top; do not stir. Bake the casserole until the crust is brown and the filling beneath is hot and bubbly, 45 minutes.
I found this recipe while watching Trisha Yearwood’s cooking show on Food Network. It is easy and delicious! Please contact Carolyn Craig at 613-5315, or e-mail email@example.com, if you have Sandy Ridge news.
