Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

 

Dan's Creamy Chicken & Pasta


main dish, pasta, poultry, chicken

1 lb thin spaghetti (dry)
2 quart chicken broth
3/4 cup sliced celery
3/4 cup slivered onions
1 cup cooked chicken, diced into
1 bite-sized pieces
4 tablespoon butter (up to 8 tb can be
1 used for a richer product)
3 tablespoon grated parm or romano cheese
1 cup milk
2 tablespoon flour
1 salt and pepper to taste

1) Bring the broth to a boil in a large pan. While it is coming up to the boil, add the celery, onion and chicken. 2) Break the thin spaghetti into smaller pieces, about 3 or 4 inches in length. Drop them into the boiling broth. 3) Cook the spaghetti until done. Most of the broth will be absorbed by the pasta. If it gets too dry add a little water. 4) In a small bowl, wisk together the milk and the flour until the flour is completely incorporated. Pour it into the boiling spaghetti pot and stir to completely mix. 5) As soon as the sauce has thickened, shut off the heat and immediately add the grated cheese. 6) Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper according to taste. This tasting is very important because some of the initial broth which you used will have varying amounts of salt. I happened to use a homemade broth which had a little salt in it and I needed to add salt. If you use a canned broth, it will probably not require as much salt as most canned broths have plenty to begin with. Recipe created, tested. typed and served by Dan Johnson
