Chicken Tetrazzini

Quick & easy chicken tetrazzini casserole recipes - This simple and healthy 15 minute meal is "baked" in the microwave oven using boneless chicken, asparagus, mushrooms, pasta, and a creamy sauce.

Joe made this pasta dish this week, and (after it was prepared), he informed me that I would not like it. He said it was bland and lacked spices. Terrific, Dear!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I teach in a large public high school. Did you know that, Dear Reader? I teach high school science. I eat lunch in the faculty room every day. A couple of weeks ago, my friend, Marti, brought chips and buffalo chicken dip in for the lunch crowd to share. The dip was so good that I ate an embarrassing amount. Then, when she asked if anyone wanted the leftovers to take with them, I didn’t even wait to see if someone else did before saying, “OH! I DO!” It was that good. After some kidding, Marti told me that she … Read more
