Chicken with Cherries in Curry Sauce

You need:
Chicken breast or tenders
1 Onion
Curry sauce
Pie cherries
Heavy cream

Brown 1 -1,5 pounds of sliced chicken tenders in hot olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. When chicken starts to brown, add one large, chopped onion. When both are browned, add 1 packet of Knorr Curry Sauce. You can use any other German Curry Sauce, but DO NOT use any Indian curry sauces. Mix with the meat and onion mixture, then add one cup of cold water. Stir well.
Add between ½ to ¾ lb. frozen pie cherries to the pan and let simmer until cherries are soft. Add heavy cream until the sauce has the consistency you like.

We eat it with rice (2 bags) and always put the boiled rice into the pan and let it absorb as much of the sauce as possible. Freezes well.

Chicken Acapulco

You need:
Chicken breast or one whole chicken
2 cans of mushroom soup
3]8 oz. sour cream
1 green diced bell pepper
1 diced large onion
flour tortillas
sharp cheddar cheese or a Mexican mixture, whatever you prefer

I always boil a whole chicken because the meat is juicier than just chicken breast. But you can do whatever you like.
I boil the chicken with salt, pepper, oregano, parsley and a bay leaf.

When cold, cut into bit-size pieces. Mix with soup, sour cream, bell pepper and onion. Season with a little salt and pepper.
I usually use two 9-13 pans, but you can use any pans you want. The mixture above is enough to fill 6-8 tortillas. Put tortillas into greased pan, fill to desired level and fold the top. Put cheese on top. We like lots of cheese, but again, that is up to you.
Refrigerate overnight – they will taste better.
Put into preheated 350 degree oven until bubbly. Great by themselves or with a salad.

Gypsy Chicken –( "Zigeunerhähnchen" in German)

This is the easiest recipe ever, but you need some German ingredients not available everywhere. I usually mail order from the German Deli in TX. They have the best selection. But any online German Deli should have what you need.

You need:
8 whole chicken legs
2 bottles of Zigeunersauce, I like Knorr
1 bag of onion soup mix
½ jar of apricot jam

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Place chicken legs in baking pan. Mix the rest of the ingredients and pour over the chicken. Bake for about 90 minutes.
We like them with baguette to eat the sauce. Also good with rice, or just a salad.

Créme Brulee French Toast

Melt 1 stick butter
1 Cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup

pour into one large or two smaller baking forms

Place up to 10 slices ( ¾ inch thick) of challah into the pan(s)

Mix 5 eggs
1 ½ Cups of half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons of Grand Marnier or any other orange liquer

Pour over challah and refrigerate overnight.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until brown on top.
Flip the slices over when you put them on the plate. The good stuff is at the bottom. You won’t need any syrup for this one.

Potatoes Au Gratin

You need:
1 large yellow onion, finely sliced and caramelized
about 1 pound sliced Russet potatoes
¼ lb each: freshly grated Gruyere and Fontina chesse
about 1 cup of heavy cream seasoned with salt and pepper
fresh sage or thyme

preheat oven to 350 degrees

Layer in greased baking form:
Potatoes, salt and pepper, a little thyme or sage, onions, cheese
Repeat until you are out of ingredients, ending with cheese
Pour cream mixture over everything
This will bubble, so make sure the form if high enough
Bake for about 90 minutes, lower heat or cover if the top gets too dark
This is very rich, but smells and tastes heavenly. Great with steaks and salad!

Orange Chocolate Cake

Easy, fast and amazing! (SO easy even Crew Chief can make it!!!)

Mix 1 yellow cake mix
3 oz. orange yello powder
1 Cup orange juice
1 tsp. orange extract
3]½ Cup oil
1 tsp. orange zest
4 eggs
1 Cup mini chocolate morsels

Bake in greased bundt pan in preheated oven for about 40-50 minutes.

A note about the Gruyere & Fontina cheeses in the Potatos Au Gratin recipe: They are pretty pricey when you buy 'em. But the taste is just AWESOME! If you love fine cheeses, splurge on this recipe just once; you'll be hooked!

Yeah, and after we are hooked, we'll go bankrupt feeding our new addiction. Uh huh, I see how you are, Crew Chief. Sneaky.
