Favorite Main Course Recipe (& Giveaway Winner)

I should not be writing this post tonight.

a.) I have a REALLY busy weekend, so I should get some sleep.
b.) My feet literally look like they are about to pop wide open.  They need to be elevated and rested.
c.) I am going out of town tomorrow right after work (and a work baby shower), but I have not done laundry, packed, or cleaned my house (coming home to a clean house is important to me... or at least it used to be.)

BUT... I've been a slack blogger this week and writing sure beats any of the options under category 'c,' so... here I am.

First, I want to share my favorite main course recipe for Kelly's Korner "Show Us Your Life".  I just pulled out all of my recipe cards and read through them (it's amazing what a girl will do to procrastinate) to pick a favorite.  This may not be THE favorite, but it is one of them for sure... We call it "Party Chicken" because my mom used to always fix this when we were having company - i.e. "a party."  I know why now -- Because it is easy, inexpensive, and people like it.  If you've been to my house for dinner, chances are you've had this.  If you have company over for dinner - or just like to take leftovers for lunch (because this is excellent for that)... I highly recommend this recipe.

So, I bring you... PARTY CHICKEN

No, not this kind (although I'm sure it also would be a hit at a party)...
4 large chicken breasts
2 oz. can of chipped beef (can be substituted with bacon)
1 cup sour cream
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
black pepper to taste

(Preheat oven to 300 degrees.)

- Line the bottom of a casserole dish with dried beef or bacon.
- Place chicken on top of beef & sprinkle with pepper.
- Mix sour cream with soup and pour over chicken.
- Cover dish with foil.
- Bake at 300 degrees for 3 hours.

Totally wasn't lying when I said this was easy... The baking is the only time consuming part -- But, that just gives me time to run the vacuum, set the table, take a shower, and make the side dishes & dessert before the guests arrive.

I usually serve with asparagus or broccoli and rice.  Fruit or a salad tops off the meal.
