Chicken Spectacular and an award
What you don't know is you're looking at the world's best casserole.
Aptly named Chicken Spectacular, this dish is phenomenal. It's creamy, savory and easy for a quick wholesome dinner.
Margaret, a dear family friend and Ben's mom's best buddy, made it for us in Shreveport. When Ben's not whining for Beef Burgundy, he whines for this.
And I can see why. This isn't your average church lady casserole. It's good. And easy. My kinda meal.
I had no problem eating this for three days straight. Seriously.
Before you go making it yourself, I have to thank Michelle. She was kind enough to award me with the Proximity Blog Award.
Michelle is a fabulous blogger who likes my favorite things: pink, sparkles and critters! She's always making cool crafts and has a totally cool house decked out for Christmas.
This award means: "This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
I'd like to pass it on to these fine folks:
3) Prudy, because she's back!
Thanks so much Michelle!
