Easy to make and you don't need to make a special trip to the store for obscure ingredients. I was a little concerned about the 'pucker level' after reading some of the other reviews. My husband is NOT a fan of sour food (sauerkraut in particular). This chicken had a tasty tang, not quite as 'puckery' as I was expecting. The husband liked it very much; I ended up spooning the extra juice over the chicken and my mashed potatoes for some extra zing.
I also have to at least double this recipe every time I make it. It's delicious - especially with Triscuits (sp?). I never have trouble knowing what to bring to a party now, because my friends and family all request this dip.
Very intense flavor, but very good. A little goes a long way.
**Update** I make this as a base and add the rum later. Follow the recipe, but only add one cinnamon stick and no rum or butter. Stick it in the fridge and fish the cinnamon stick out after an hour or so. I microwave a mug of cider mix and add the rum at a ratio of 6:1. *** Delicious! Was a great hit at my house for Christmas Eve. I should have listened to the other reviews that cut the amt. of alcohol, though. I disregarded because all people in attendance at my party enjoy their liquor. However, this was a little potent. I ended up adding more cider to dilute the rum.
Delicious and oh-so easy! This will definitely be a regular meal at our house.
Very good - and a sneaky way to get my 2 year old to eat more whole grains! I doctored up half the batch with shredded carrot and raisins - Very yummy. I didn't measure, just eye-balled it. The first half of the recipe, the undoctored half, tastes remarkable like the cookie part of the Girl Scout peanut butter sandwich cookies (but softer). I'll definitely be making these again.
Thank you, Jane! My Aunt always makes these for holidays and special occaisions and has always been reluctant to share her recipe. When she has shared, the tassies are always suspiciously a disaster..... Anyhow, yours taste just as wonderful and they turned out great. I did use pecans instead of walnuts, but imagine they'd be fabulous either way. Can I trade in my Aunt Jean for an Aunt Jane?
Quick and easy. I'm a big fan of all-in-one meals, and this is a good one. I thought it could use a little more pizazz, so next time I believe I'll jazz it up a bit with garlic and seasoned salt. However, even my finicky hubby liked it, so it will definitely be added to my dinner rotation. ***I tried this again for dinner over the weekend and used seasoned salt, garlic and Worchestershire sauce. I also cooked it on the grill. It was much better this time and was an easy cookout item.****
I'm not a big sugar cookie fan, but these were suprisingly good. I get a kick out of making seasonal cookies for my daughter - so far these cookies have been made for Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and the 4th of July. Whew!
Very good. I increased to 20 servings and took to a wake. This was the first dish to go, and received many compliments. I added a little bit of ground red pepper for zing (just a dash or two). One quick observation about the 'dryness' comments - mine wasn't dry at all, but I DO wonder if the dryness resulted from mixing the breadcrumbs in with the noodles rather than layering on top.
These were okay - great flavor, but not as flaky and tender as I'd like. I might have over-kneaded, but I think I'll stick with Bisquik for now. If I made these a few more times I'm sure they would come out better for me, but I doubt I'll make again.
