This could be your dinner tomorrow night.
Easy chicken casserole
2 C chopped cooked chicken
2 C cooked long-grain white rice
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/3 C mayonnaise
3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
2 green onions, sliced
1 C corn flakes
1 TBS butter or margarine, melted
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients except corn flakes and butter. Spoon into 1-1/2-qt. casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with combined remaining ingredients. Bake 35 to 40 min. or until heated through.
Quinoa salad
1 C quinoa, uncooked
1 can (14.5 oz.) chicken broth
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed
1 can (11 oz.) corn, drained
1 red pepper, chopped
5 green onions, sliced
6 slices baked cooked ham, finely chopped
1/2 C zesty Italian dressing
Bring quinoa and broth to boil in medium saucepan; cover. Simmer on low heat 15 min. or until quinoa is tender and broth is absorbed; spoon into medium bowl. Cool. Add remaining ingredients just before serving; mix lightly.
Buckeye cookie
1 box (18-19 oz.) brownie mix
¼ C butter, melted
½ C cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
¾ C peanut butter
¾ C powdered sugar
¾ C chocolate frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl combine brownie mix, butter, cream cheese and egg. Stir until dough comes together, it will be very thick and sticky. Form rounded tablespoon-sized portions of dough into balls, placing them on baking sheet about 2 inches apart, making an indentation with your thumb in the center of each.
In another bowl, stir together peanut butter and powdered sugar. Form peanut butter into teaspoon-sized balls and press into the indentations in the brownie cookies. Press peanut butter down slightly because the peanut butter won’t spread and you don’t want the cookies to be too tall. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are set. Transfer to wire rack to cool. When cooled, top each cookie with about a tablespoon of chocolate frosting.
