Crixxie's Ranch Chicken Nuggets
worked for whole chicken breasts. Great for crunchy chicken on salads.

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World
Great Flavor combination! If making for people who don't like it too hot. Used 1/2 anaheim chili, 1 T chili powder, 1 can diced chilies. Used 2 28 oz and 1 14 oz cans tomatoes. Added 2 zuchinni squash, 2 yellow crook neck squash. Would be great over wild/brown rice! Made above changes, otherwise would be a little spicy for some in my extended family. I eliminated the beef crumbles, as I prefer just the vegies. I think the squash made up for the volume. Made a huge pot.

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)
Wonderful soup. Served to several friends who were somewhat anxious about lentils, but they loved it. I use balsamic vinegar to top it off with the olive oil and always serve with a crusty bread. Sometimes I have added a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes along with the tomato paste. Also I generally double the recipe as the lentils come in 16oz packages. One of those recipes that get better the next day!
