My husband bought me a new cook book that we will be featuring this month, The Dead Celebrity Cook Book. This book is so cool, it has some of my all time favorite people and their famous recipes listed in it. It has people like Lucille Ball, Johnny Cash, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, and more, it features over 145 stars of stage and screen. My first pick from the book is Isabel Sanford (1917-2004), We all grew up watching her play Weezy on the Jefferson's. I loved how she always kept her cranky husband George under control, she is truly missed.
4 - Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (the book calls for 8)
4 - Whole Russet Potatoes (washed)
1 C. - 1000 Island Dressing
1 C. - Apricot / Pineapple Jelly
1 Packet - Instant Onion Soup Mix
1 Dash - Cinnamon
1/4 C. - Grated Onion
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Spray a baking dish with some cooking spray then lay the chicken in the dish, cut the potatoes in half length wise and place around the chicken. In another dish mix the rest of ingredients together and spread evenly over the chicken and potatoes. Cover the entire dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil, turn up the oven to 375 degrees and bake for another 15-30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Plate the chicken and potatoes and serve more sauce drizzled over the top. This dish when we read it sounded very odd and kinda creepy strange, but then we thought hey let’s try something different. To our surprise this dish was actually very good , the flavors really went together nicely.
