Sweet and Sour Chicken I
The chicken took 8 minutes for me, and tasted like chicken nuggets :) Way better than takeout!

Country Chicken
My family really enjoyed this dish. We put it over mashed potatos, then for the final touch sprinkled with bacon pieces- YUM! - next time I will halve the butter since it seems excessive- I used boneless skinless chicken breast cut up, and they turned out very moist. I added garlic and red pepper to the butter when sauteing the chicken which added a little something "extra." For the gravy I used 5 cups boillon/water total, then when I added it to the chicken I simmered it for 30 minutes uncovered. I also added 2 Tbsp of cornstarch to thicken it. A tip for those who get clumps is to put about 1/4 cup of gravy in a bowl sprinkle it with the cornstarch and whisk VERY well. Add it to the pot and you get a nice smooth thick gravy. You'll also have lot of leftovers to enjoy later.

Basic Truffles
I was disappointed with this recipe. I was expecting a smooth consistent texture and what I got was quite dry and hard (drier in the center than on the edges for some reason). I used a high quality chocolate chip $$ that I normally do not purchase. I feel that they were wasted on this recipe. I thought the cream would make it -well- creamier. But that does not seem to be the case. I will keep looking for the perfect truffle recipe.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
