Entertaining:When Guests Drop In



The other day I was thinking about what some of the challenges many homemakers face.  One of them happens to be when unexpected guests drop by. A “Stress Buzzer” goes off in your head, “What am I going to do now?,” “I don’t think I have enough food.” Many homemakers have encountered this issue at one time or another. You may have dinner ready and it’s just something simple like hamburgers for four or even chicken defrosting in your fridge but now there are two additional mouths to feed. What to do?

Well you’ve read previously about me teaching you how to keep your pantry stocked. If your pantry and freezer are well-stocked, there’s no problem with having two additional guests. Serving Chicken?  Here’s a Potluck Chicken your guests will enjoy!


8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 -3/4 cup flour

1/4 cup parsley

1 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon pepper

1 Tablespoon butter

1 pound fresh sliced mushrooms

1/2 pint sour cream

1/2 cup dry white wine

1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Wash and pat dry chicken breasts.  In a large storage or freezer zip-lock bag combine flour, parsley, salt and pepper. Place chicken breasts in bag and shake until well coated. In a skillet on medium heat melt butter. Place chicken breasts in melted butter and cooked until lightly brown. Once browned, place chicken breasts in a 9 x12 baking dish . Set aside. In the same skillet chicken was cooked in, saute 1 pound fresh sliced mushrooms, approximately 5-8 minutes. Add sour cream, dry white wine and rosemary.  Stir until all ingredients are incorporated. Pour over chicken.

Bake 1 1/2 hours. Serve with rice or noodles.  You have 8 generous servings for everyone. Complete the meal with a tossed green salad and some flaky biscuits. Surely a recipe worth adding to your file,
