Tasty Kitchen. I immediately knew I had to try it because it combines three of my favorite foods - chicken, rice-a-roni and French fried onions! This was super quick and easy. I used rotisserie chicken and this was ready in no time flat. We both really enjoyed this; especially the crunchy onions on top.

I found this recipe on Pinterest - my favorite source of inspiration. This chicken is best described as a deconstructed chicken casserole. I actually thought this was easier and better than a regular chicken casserole. I used full fat sour cream, but I think light sour cream would be fine. I would stay away from fat free sour cream - I think you need some fat to flavor the chicken. I think our favorite part of the dish was the crunchy crouton topping - YUM! Give this a try the next time you need a super quick weeknight meal.

This version was inspired by the Club Sandwich Puffs I made earlier this year. We really liked the little bite-sized sandwiches and decided to turn the Hot Brown into a bite-sized treat too. We ate these for dinner, and there were no leftovers. This is a great way to use up any leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, and they would be the perfect addition to your Iron Bowl tailgate on Saturday!!

This recipe is the perfect way to use up any leftover turkey you might have from your feast today. I found the original recipe over at Deep South Dish. Mary has TONS of amazing Southern recipes. I gain weight just reading her recipes! Seriously!
I've always been intimidated with the thought of making chicken and dumplings. It seemed like a lot of work, so when I came across this recipe on Mary's site, I knew I had to give it a try. It was simple and really quick to make. It was fabulous! Chicken Legs especially loved it. I used a rotisserie chicken and this came together in no time. We will be making a turkey version this weekend!

This might be our all-time favorite potato casserole. It is SO creamy and delicious. This casserole is not diet food by any means. It has cream of chicken and mushroom soup, sour cream and butter! I do use 98% fat free soup and light sour cream - every little bit helps! Since there are only two of us, I usually divide the mixture between three 8-inch foil pans and freeze two for later. It makes for a super quick side dish later!

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this Thursday! It seems like Halloween was only yesterday! I hope everyone is ready! We have our stretchy pants washed and dried, so we are ready to feast! For us (Chicken Legs actually), Thanksgiving is not complete without an amazing dessert. If you are still looking for one (or two), here are some of our favorites:

While the rest of the country is planning their Thanksgiving menus, those of us in Alabama are planning our Iron Bowl menus! This Iron Bowl Zebra Cake is the perfect ending to any Iron Bowl party. It is really easy to make and has a great presentation!
A zebra cake is traditionally vanilla and chocolate striped. I wanted to make this a fun and festive Iron Bowl cake, so I used a white cake mix and tinted the layers orange & blue and red & white. It takes a few minutes to layer the batter into the pans, but the results are worth it. This cake is sure to impress!

The original recipe came from my Dad's Mom. She was a great cook and made one of my other all-time favorite meals - Chicken Tetrazzini. My Mom has perfected the dressing recipe over the years. Chicken Legs can't get enough of this at the holidays. He especially likes it reheated at about 10:00 pm on Thanksgiving or Christmas night. Chicken Legs swears this is the best dressing you'll ever eat - I agree!

This was the best thing we ate last weekend. This is my favorite dish at Carrabba's. I found the recipe online and knew I had to make it at home. This was so good. The chicken smelled amazing on the grill, and the pasta sauce was fantastic! It was light and fresh. We both absolutely loved it. We want to make it again this weekend.
I did make a few changes to the original recipe. I used a can of San Marzano tomatoes and pulsed them in the food processor to crush them. This recipe has lots of garlic, but don't worry. The flavor is actually pretty mellow since you slow cook it in the olive oil. I used angel hair pasta because that is what I had on hand, but any pasta will work. Give this a try on your next pasta night. It is quick, easy and delicious!

This is the recipe that made me realize that I liked pumpkin. My Mom made this years ago and wouldn't tell us what it was until we tried it. We all loved it and then she told us it was made from pumpkin. I would have never tried it if I knew it had pumpkin in it!
I made this last week and took it to work. It was a huge hit. Everyone wanted the recipe. This is so quick and easy to make. It would make a perfect ending to a fabulous Thanksgiving feast next week.
