Chicken Piccata II
This chicken was so delicious!! I will be making it again real soon!! I always use tenderloins when recipes call for breasts because I find the chicken to coating ratio to be better and the chicken cooks faster. This was so moist due to the simmering, next time I will make it with (small) breasts because I think it will hold up and not get dry. I loved the lemon flavor. I added lemon zest to the egg mixture and will use more juice in the broth next time. Also, I added more garlic powder and paprika than called for. I also added garlic powder to the broth. This recipe doesn't take much time at all (especially because I used the tenderloins), but maybe I'll try to see how using canned/boxed chicken broth will turn out to save a couple minutes. One last recommendation, while I usually love lots of buttery richness in dishes that call for it, I found that 1/4C butter was a bit much. I will maybe use a butter substitute ('I Can't Believe It's Not Butter'), mix regular butter and the substitute, or just use less regular butter next time.

Broccoli Cheese Soup
This soup deserves a 3-3 1/2 stars, but gets a four for EASE of the recipe. I could not imagine making this without doubling the broccoli and cheese. I doubled cheese and broc, and I also omitted the water and mixed the corn starch in with the 4th can of broth and it turned out with a great consistency. I will make this again, no doubt, but with some more modifications; maybe the ones suggested by lovestohost.

Bella's Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
I will def be making these again... My all time favorite sprouts recipe is shredded sprouts with bacon, but this recipe takes less time to make since I don't have to chop the sprouts. I used low sodium chicken broth and it was too bland so I added about 1tbs of chicken bouillon granules while it was simmering (simmered for 20 min covered). Then I uncovered and added cornstarch/water mix to thicken the sauce. I had my doubts since I love the other recipe so much, but I was pleasantly surprised. I will try to make them without the vinegar next time. The vinegar taste was my only gripe, but overall tasty! THANK YOU FOR POSTING!!!
