Basil Cream Chicken
I did make some changes.....I hate pimiento, so I subbed sun-dried tomatoes. (2 or 3 oz worth- jarred in oil, but drained) I love em. I first made it breading the chicken, but since then I just brown it in the butter. (IMO, no use in breading) I mix everything else in a bowl & pour over. When a recipe calls for a small amount of chicken broth, I just use granules with water. I also usually just use some dried basil. (1 T) That is always on hand. And since Costco has those half gallons of half & half now, I use that instead of whipping cream. :)

Ranch Style Oyster Crackers
Love these. Without a doubt, cut back oil to 1/2 cup. I also use the small packet of dry ranch, which is .4 oz. That way they are not TOO salty. I also omit the lemon pepper & use 1 t. dill. As someone else noted, definitely use the Premium oyster crackers.....the store brands are so inferior! And yes, it is a 9oz package. SO easy & you will LOVE them!

Restaurant-Quality Baked Potato Soup
I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. I have made it for years. It is GREAT. I microwave the potatoes, use 1 c. onion, & use a little less potato flakes. I also use real bacon bits in a jar (easier) & omit the green onions as a garnish. This recipe is easier than it may seem.
