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.


Miss Hulling's Chicken Pot Pie

chicken, casseroles

1 5 pound stewing hen, cut up
5 cup water
1 small onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 recipe pastry
2 medium potatoes, cooked and cubed
2 ribs celery
2 carrots

Simmer chicken in water with onion, celery, carrots and salt until tender (about 3 hours). Remove chicken from bones and cut in cubes, discarding the skin. Strain broth and measure, adding water to make 3 cups. Thicken broth with 4 Tablespoons flour mixed with 1/4 cup water. Adjust seasonings with a dash of white pepper and more salt if necessary. Add chicken, carrots (cubed) and cubed potatoes. Spoon into 6 individual casserole dishes or a 2-quart casserole. Roll pastry about 1/4-inch thick and top the casserole, sealing the edges. Make several slashes in the pastry to allow the steam to escape. Bake in a hot oven (400 degrees F.) for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Helpful Hints: Biscuit dough (rolled thin) or individual biscuits may be used for the topping. I also add defrosted frozen peas, to add more color.
