We eat a lot of chicken. It's one thing that I can be sure of that my family will eat & enjoy. I'm always on the lookout for interesting new ways to prepare it.
I found this recipe for chicken chimis on Recipes of a Cheapskate. Simple recipe and very versatile -you can change this recipe around to include your family's favorites. My family enjoyed them. I will make them again and also make extras to stick in lunches.
2 C. shredded chicken
1 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
2 - 8 ct. cans crescent rolls
Roll out crescent rolls. Divide rolls into squares using 2 triangles for each square. Pinch seams together.
Top crescent squares with 1 TBSP of salsa on each, making sure to not touch the edges with the salsa. Evenly divide and sprinkle the cheese over all of the squares. Top all with shredded chicken.
Fold both ends of crescent square into the middle and seal the seam well. Seal the ends of each square, too.
Lay seam side down on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 18 - 20 minutes at 350*.
Top with sour cream, if desired.
This Polish-Slovakian dish of fried noodles and cabbage, is another Pittsburgh regional favorite.
Like peirogies, this is another dish that I grew up eating. There are many different versions of this recipe out there. I like mine made with noodles and cabbage. Some people like to add cottage cheese to it.
1 small head of cabbage
1 lb egg noodles
butter or margarin
Cook the egg noodles and drain well.Set aside to cool
Cut cabbage into bite-size pieces. I boil the cabbage until fork tender -- some people like to add it to the frying pan and cook it in butter or margarine until it is tender. If boiling the cabbage, drain well once it is tender.
Melt 1/4 C. of butter in a frying pan. Add cabbage and noodles. Stir to coat with butter. You might have to add another 1/4 C. butter --not exactly a healthy dish but it's so good! Sprinkle on black pepper to your liking - I tend to add a lot of pepper.
Fry until heated through. I like it a little crispy so I cook mine a little longer.
