Food on Fridays with Ann
Valentine’s Day tradition at the Kroeker house is to have a family feast.We make a big meal, set the dining room table with a red or pink tablecloth and good china, light candles, turn on some fun music, and pass around homemade Valentine’s cards.After the meal, we take turns sharing at least one thing we enjoy, love or admire about each person in the family.Our hope is to create a tradition that the kids look back on with fondness and look forward to with joy, knowing that they are loved and accepted no matter what…that there will always be a Valentine in their mailbox.The main dish for our feast is a crock pot recipe for chicken. The original recipe is HERE, but we modified it and took the liberty of coining a much more satisfying name:Hoosier Comfort Chicken (crock pot recipe)
- 8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (we slice them again into smaller pieces)
- 8 strips bacon (one slice for each piece of chicken, so you’ll need more if you cut the breasts into smaller pieces)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup (or I’ve substituted a from-scratch version made with flour and oil, adding chicken broth and some cream)
- 1 jar dried beef (the original calls for it, but we leave it out, sometimes substituting additional bits of bacon instead)
Preparation:Wrap a strip of bacon around each piece of chicken breast. Line bottom of crock pot with cut up chipped beef (you can substitute bits of bacon if you don’t use the beef…or skip altogether). Place the chicken breast halves or pieces on the chipped beef. Combine sour cream and soup; pour over the chicken. Bake in crock pot on low 6-8 hours or until chicken is cooked. (You can bake this in a baking dish in the oven; the cooking time is about 2 hours at 300º and bacon may get more crispy.) Serve on cooked egg noodles.Happy Valentine’s Day!
