Well, it took almost exactly 2 1/2 hrs. Oven roasted turkey breast with stuffing on the side, gravy and mashed red potatoes. I could eat it every week.
Mar. 25, 2014 1:04 pm
Don, thank you for posting. Sounds wonderful.
Mar. 25, 2014 1:06 pm
Marcella, I agree! We love roasted turkey. I usually buy a few whole, or breasts, when on sale.
Mar. 25, 2014 1:27 pm
gee thanks Marcella- now i want turkey & dressing- i have two cooked breasts in the freezer- guess what for dinner- say-thursday--lol
Mar. 25, 2014 2:03 pm
somethingdifferentagain?! and nanny 129, the thing is, those turkey breasts are so easy to cook, so the "hard work" is the rest of the meal! And the house smells sooooo good, too!

I made this, it was great, but I didn't use the cheese or arugula. The corn & zucchini mixture is very good and colorful for spring. I used the spices that I had on hand. :

checking out... thanks, suesee

It's been a while since I made Cordon Bleu. Will have to try this version! (3716 5-star wow!)

So you have a decent meat mallet to pound chicken breasts? I recently got one & use it lots. Boneless chicken pounds quickly & sautees in minutes.

Love this recipe!

Love this! Use panko according to package directions instead of just flour. So so so good!!!!

this is one of our favorites-i just use whatever i have - add different veggies - leftover meat- if i have some of the "sauces"- fine if not i make do with what in the pantry-- but the noodles are perfect- we don't like fettichini for chinese- and this is great on the budget- for company you can fancy it up with baby corn and snow peas- yum- pretty dish too:-)i use napa cabbage when i catch a sale:-)

I make a version of this often. I can't wait to try someone elses version. Thank you!

Yay, for salmon recipes! And... the I can't wait to try the chicken caesar pasta. It looks *very* interesting. I make my own caesar dressing, and have some to use up, so that's great too. Thank you, semigourmet!

This is a family favorite along with smashed potatoes, green beans and hot biscuits. We prefer smashed potatoes over mashed potatoes. I do double the sauce in the recipe.
