Mesquite Chicken, Chicken Breast Casserole, Chicken Pot Pie, and Chicken Dressing Casserole
Hey guys! How is everyone today? We had more rain today…over 2 inches the last two days. Things are looking up!
Today we’re gonna talk chicken here in Miz Judi’s Kitchen.
Course when our youngest son Red’s talking chicken, he’s talking about the time I wouldn’t get on Space Mountain. Or, maybe the time I wouldn’t ride the Ferris wheel at the fair with hm. Or, maybe what I become when I’m startled by of all things…a dern spider! Honestly I can’t stand them!
But since Red’s not here, we’re talking about the real chicken…chicken!
In today’s economy, and with food prices continuing to go up in cost, chicken is an option, but the last couple times Deb and I have been to the grocery store, chicken is going out of sight as well.
Deb and I feel that for all-round meals with meat, hamburger is probably our number 1 choice. First off it’s so versatile with the number of different meals you can set a table with.
Secondly there is absolutely no waste, whether it be bone or fat, and lastly we like it any number of ways, and it’s so easy to food saver and freeze, taking up little room in your freezer. But, hamburger too is going out of sight!
Deb paid $4.99 a pound a couple weeks back, and I saw it on sale for $3.99 a pound yesterday. Hamburger for $3.99 a pound…on sale??
Chicken would probably be our second choice, but we find pork to our liking as well. Okay, okay, maybe all this isn’t so much to Deb’s liking, BUT, personally…I like them all! LOL!
My point is this though. You can cut back your meat portions and still make good, nutritious, belly filling meals, and the best way we find to do this is simply some type of casserole dish.
Not all today’s recipes are casserole dishes, but most are, or just maybe close to being!
These recipes come from, once again Deb’s OLDER sister Louise, and her church’s cookbook. For those who haven’t been to our columns very often, Deb asks that when talking about her sister, I do so with emphasis on “sis’ being …OLDER!
Hey Weezie…Deb forced me to do this!

Note to Readers: There are a few things that Dub doesn’t know but one thing he does know is that the word ‘Riding’ (as in Riding Out the Recession) is spelled with a ‘g’ at the end. But Dub not only walks the walk, but speaks like he is: down home, true blue, and plain speakin’ country folk.
Dub and Deb are both native Floridians, live in Central Florida, and run a small business as well. They have five children, and seven grandchildren.
Both love to cook, love to laugh, grow a garden, and generally try to “aggravate” most anyone around them basically…all in good fun, of course!
