Bill's Salsa Chicken & Rice
I've been making this for years, and thought I'd share it, finally. Here's my recipe and the quantity I usually make:
Six chicken breasts with skin, baked in plastic cooking bags at 400°F for about an hour (depending on your oven).
Six servings of rice. I prefer brown, but white works just fine.
Before cooking rice, add 2-3 shakes of each of the following spices to the water in which you'll be cooking the rice:
crushed red pepper
Creole seasoning (I use McCormick's)
Once both the chicken and rice are done, de-bone and de-skin the chicken and mix it in with the rice, using the same pot in which you cooked the rice.
Finally, stir in:
one can of condensed Cream of Celery (or Mushroom) soup
four ¼-inch-thick slices of cheddar and/or mozzarella cheese (from standard "brick" of cheese)
1½ cups of salsa (I prefer Ortega)
handful of fresh mushrooms
And that's it! Formerly known as "Bill's Chicken Glop," I finally came up with a better name.
Palacsintas (pronounced pah-lah-CHIN-tuhz)
Markowitz recipe. Makes about 4-5 palacsintas.
beat well 2 eggs
Add a pinch of salt
½ teaspoon sugar
beat/mix in blender until has a loose consistency.
Add ½ cup water and some flour while mixing, until thick enough
As a test, dip spoon into mix and let the mixture drip
Make sure it does not drip too fast or too slow
If too thick, add water
If mixture splashes, add some more flour.
Pour some oil to frying pan then pour mix. As soon as it forms and start to show large bubbles, turn it over for a minute or so. Take it out of the frying pan and dry it on a paper towel if you wish.
Stuff it with your choice: seasoned mushrooms, salty cheese, sweet cheese etc. Don's Diet Julius Place ½ cup orange juice concentrate in blender
