COMFORTING CHICKEN AND RICE



There are certain foods that just bring comfort!  Last night's dinner called for comfort food:



You will need:  2 large chicken breasts, 1 medium green pepper,
1 medium onion, 5 large mushrooms, 2/3 cup milk, 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 stick butter, cooked rice, salt and pepper

Here is what I did:
First, I sliced up 2 chicken breasts and sauteed
 them in a large skillet in 1/2 stick of butter.  
Do not drain butter or broth created.


In another skillet saute  in 1/2 stick butter: a medium green chopped pepper, a medium chopped onion and 5 large chopped mushrooms - salt and pepper to taste.

In a bowl, combine 1 can of cream of mushroom soup,  2/3 cup heavy whipping cream and 2/3 cup of milk and mix well.  Add this to the chopped pepper mixture and then pour all this over over the chicken mixture heating well/ stir through!  Salt and pepper again   
Serve over cooked rice.
Will serve 4 people or 2 with leftovers!




I am joining Foodie Friday at Rattlebridge Farm!

Also,  a photo of a fluffy dove on Jemima Puddleduck taken from this morning out the kitchen window:

Hi Bernideen, I finally found you after few months of wondering. Your garden is looking lush and colourful.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Several of us were pirated early in the year and had to change our addresses to .com's. Glad you found me!

Mmmmmmmmmm sounds delicious. Great photos - now I have to look and see if I have any chicken in the freezer, I'm hungry.

Maybe too many calories for me with the whipping cream. How cute to see the dove there. Nancy

Yum! I have everything to make that except the mushrooms, so I'll be getting those next grocery trip. Thanks for the suggestion!

Love the dove on Jemima! Nice you were able to get a picture to share. Very obliging of the dove!

So glad Angela:
We are eating leftovers tonight that I had put in the freezer! Working - I always make a lot of everything and freeze some right away! Works for us!
