So, I go and post my biggest giveaway ever, have a TON of new friends stop by to enter, and then leave my blog all by it’s lonesome for 5 days. Oops. Here’s the scoop – I was in an out-of-town wedding on Friday, and had to leave for it on Wednesday. So we were out of town from Wednesday until yesterday. Then this morning, my committee sponsored the Rally Day brunch at church, and Husby and I were part of the sermon. A crazy morning, starting at church before 730am! Uff da. So thanks for being patient for the recipe posts =)

Last week I made a couple recipes from the brand new, not even available on bookshelves yet, Gooseberry Patch Big Book of Home Cooking. And I’ll just say… yum! In keeping with the whole going MIA after a big post, of course I couldn’t find my camera for this first recipe, so all pics are taken with my cell. {smacking forehead}


Here’s Golden Chicken Divan. It took about 20 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to bake. Pretty great for a weeknight meal! And it was deLISH. The combo of soup and cheese… mmm! Great comfort food. Husby loved it. He ate half the pan. =)

Golden Chicken Divan
from the Gooseberry Patch Big Book of Home Cookingsubmitted by Amy Kim in Ann Arbor, MI
1lb broccoli
1 1/2 C. cooked chicken, cubed (I used ‘chicken for stirfry’ – it’s pre-cut!)
10 3/4 oz can cream of broccoli soup
1/2 C. sour cream
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. seasoned salt
1/2 C. shredded Cheddar (I used cojack, because that’s what we had =) )
1 T. butter, melted
2 T. dry bread crumbs

Cover broccoli with water in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes or until tender; drain. (I used frozen steamer bags and tossed them in the microwave). In a large bowl, combine broccoli, chicken, soup, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Spread in a greased 8×8 pan; sprinkle with cheese. Mix together melted butter and brread curmbs; sprinkle over cheese. Bake uncovered at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or until bubbly and golden. Serves 6.

I’m so embarrassed with these awful pics, but they’re better than none. I guess. =) This is just one of over 450 recipes in this book, so hop over for your chance to win a copy!
