What to eat Wednesday

Todays what to eat is a two for one, dinner and dessert!

My friend Julie brought this over the weekend that Nana passed away. She made one for us and one for my mom and sister. We all loved it. I even froze part of it then re heated it and it was great a second time around.
Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
cut up (raw) into bite size pieces
1 1/2 c. Swiss Cheese, grated
1 1/2c. Ham, chopped
1 can reduced fat cream of chicken soup
1 pint low-fat sour cream
1 pkg. stove top stuffing, chicken flavor (prepared as directed omitting butter)

Place raw chicken on the bottom of a 9X13" pan. Top with rated cheese & chopped ham.
Mix together soup and sour cream & pour over the top of the cheese & ham. Sprinkle
prepared stuffing on top. Bake @375 for 50 - 60 mins.

And here is the dessert. I am sure I will have to re-post some of these recipes with photos when I make them for our own family. Just trust me when I say that every single one has been delicious. (Or I would not be posting them!) But this next recipe- it beats any brownie mix I have ever made. It will be in competition with this recipe the next time I make brownies. In fact- I think I will have to do a taste test for my family and have a vote on which one they like best. They are very similar.

Julie's Brownies
1 c. butter, melted
3 c. white sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt (1/2 tsp. if using salted butter)
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 & lightly grease a 9x13 pan.
Combine melted butter, sugar, & vanilla in a large bowl. Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.
Sift together flour, cocoa powder, & salt. Gradually stir in the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish.
Bake until a toothpick comes out clean - 35 - 40 mins. Remove & cool completely before cutting.

Thanks again Julie for helping us out, and for sharing such a delicious meal. (and for sharing the recipes!)
