This is a favorite dish of our family that my mom made for us when she was out visiting recently.  This is super easy and great to add as a side to any dish.

½ bag of red potatoes

Olive oil

¼ cup butter

Italian seasoning


Salt and pepper


Onion powder

Melt butter and a few table spoons of olive oil in 9x13 pan at 350.  While that melts clean and cut into quarters the red potatoes.  Once butter is melted pour potatoes into dish and mix in seasionings until potatoes are coated.  Cover and bake at 350 for 45 min to an hour.

This is a variation on a family recipie that I tried out and we loved it.

2 cups hot water
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1 box of Pork Stuffing (6oz) and 2 cups of additional stuffing
1/2 cup melted butter

Brown pork chops for 4 min per side.  While they brown take the bullion base and hot water and mix together.  Add to the soups and heat on stove.  Melt butter and mix with the stuffing.  Place 1/2 the stuffing on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.  Add the pork chops and then soup mixture to that.  Add the remianing stuffing to the top and bake in the over for 45 min at 350 degrees. 

You can add mashed potatoes and veggies to the side to make it a complete meal.

I used to make this in the oven and after several times of it boiling over and not cooking properly I decided to try it in the crockpot.  It turned out perfectly.  This one is super easy and quick to put together.

3-4 Chicken breasts, thawed
3 cans of Cream of chicken Soup
5-6 potaotes, peeled and cut into quarters
1 medium onion, cut into chunks
1 package of Lipton Onion soup mix

Place chicken, potatoes and onion in crockpot.  Add the soups and 1/2 can of water.  Cook for 6-8 hours.  Can add cheese at the end, if so desired.  Enjoy!

Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat until hot. Lightly brown chicken on both sides. Place Chicken in crockpot. Pour pasta sauce over chicken, add basil, oregano and bay leaf. Cook on Low for 6-7 hours or on high 3-4, or until chicken is tender (I did it for 6 and the chicken just fell apart) Remove lid and discard bay leaf.
Sprinkle chicken with cheeses. Cook, uncovered on low for 15-30 minutes or until cheesse have melted. Serve over spaghetti.
