Home, Dinner, Warhol Chicken
Nice dinner at home with the first meal we ever all had together. I remember trying to find a recipe that was easy, kitschy, fun and tasty. I asked around the office and two Headquarters employees (both now retired, but were WONDERFUL people to chat with) recommended this "Mozzarella Tomato Chicken". They gave me a copied print of it and I noticed the second item immediately: "1 can condensed tomato soup". I knew I had a winner. But it needed a new name, begged for it, so I dubbed it from the bland title to "Warhol Chicken". Get it? Like Andy Warhol and his Tomato Soup can art? Okay! So the recipe:
-Preheat oven, 350 F
-Shallow baking dish, greased
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 can of condensed tomato soup
1 tsp dried basil leaves or 1 tbsp chopped fresh
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1) Rinse and wipe chicken with paper towel then in a large sprayed or greased skillet (nonstick) saute chicken on med/high heat for 5 min each side until browned.
2) Put chicken in prepped baking dish. Combine soup and basil, then put over chicken and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or till chicken is no longer pink inside.
Pasta is usually a good side, but Lisa made some buttermilk biscuits and asparagus was the veggie. Very good!
