Chicken & Potatoes, Dave & Cassi Style

Posted on

Tonight we made a dinner… that was sort of a fail. We made one dish that we are very used to making and it was fantastic. The other dish was new, and it turned out kind of weird. I know it would have been soooooo amazing if I hadn’t messed it up. It was even so ugly that I didn’t take a picture. Okay, actually I took a picture, but it’s too ugly to post. Trust me, you wouldn’t eat if you saw it. But it had so much flavor that if you were blindfolded, you would eat it up like there was no tomorrow. Here is the recipe:

Chicken with Creamy Dijon Herb Sauce

1 can chicken broth

½ cup Dijon mustard

1/3 cup cream cheese spread, softened (We used Philadelphia Cooking Creme)

1 tbsp minced herbs (parsley, basil, or chives)

1 tbsp oil

4 (6 oz each) boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 tsp minced garlic

Mix broth, mustard, cream cheese and herbs until well blended. Set aside

Cook chicken in hot oil in nonstick skillet until browned on both sides – 15 minutes

Stir in mustard sauce and garlic. Simmer over medium heat 3-5 minutes until sauce thickens slightly and flavors are blended.

TIP: Recipe can also be baked, which is what we did. For 50 minutes at 375* We doubled it and baked it right along with Cassi’s Hashbrown Casserole. (Recipe next)  Next time WILL NOT DOUBLE the chicken broth, it was WAY WAY too much. The chicken was swimming… and chickens do not swim.  Still had lots of great flavor.

The dish we made that is a staple at our house is

Cassi’s Hashbrown Casserole

10 cups frozen hashbrowns
1 stick of butter, divided
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
½ cup milk
12 oz sour cream
crushed cornflakes (I didn’t realize we didn’t have any this time so we made it without. We missed them.)

Melt half a stick of butter in 9×13 baking pan. Pour in 5 cups of frozen hashbrowns. Mix soup, milk and sour cream together. Pour half of mixture over hashbrowns. Top with 1 cup cheddar cheese. Repeat layers and top with crushed cornflakes and rest of butter.

Happy cooking!!

  1. Wah! I HATE when new recipes are almost amazingOh man, do we love that hashbrown casserole, I once was responsible for breakfast for Sunday school and had nothing else on hand, so I made the hashbrown casserole, but stirred in some ham chunks and green onions to make it more um, breakfasty?! Gotta tell ya, it was pretty stinkin’ delicious! And no one even knew it was a last minute “Uh-oh!” deal. Agree on the corn flakes…a MUST!

    Cassi! Your blog is great! I love the consistency of the Sunday posts and the variety provided from the rest of the posts.

  5. It’s amazing what you will eat and what will become tasty as you experience more in life! When Kurtis and I were living in Hutch, we had so little that we ate whatever we made, no matter how it ended up looking and leftovers became a necessity 🙂

    • I hear ya! I think the less money you have, the more creative you get. One time Dave and I took little smokies and made tiny pigs in a blanket with half a pillsbury biscuit each and a pinch of cheese. And they were awesome! We made them again later, even when we had other food choices in the house!
