Christmas Chicken Spaghetti

I got this recipe from the Sherman Service League cookbook and this is by far one of the best Chicken Spaghetti recipes I have found! It is very flavorful and yummy!

**Christmas Chicken Spaghetti**

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 small chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
½ stick butter or margarine
1 tbsp. Olive oil
1 (12 ounce) package vermicelli (spaghetti noodles)
Garlic Powder

Boil chicken and season as desired (garlic powder, salt.) Reserve broth. In a pan, saute onion, celery, butter and olive oil. Add soup, ripe olives, Velveeta and season to taste with garlic powder. Cook until cheese melts, stirring often. Boil vermicelli according to package directions. Drain. Combine vermicelli, chopped chicken and soup mixture with 1-1 ½ cups chicken broth. Mix well. Pour into lightly greased casserole dish and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Balsamic Almond Chicken

This is quite delicious. Alex and I LOVED it, and it's very easy to make.

1/2 C ground almonds
1/4 C all purpose flour
2 eggs
2 boneless chicken breasts (or 4 halves)
2 TBS canola oil
1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 C chicken broth
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
1 TBS brown sugar

  • Combine almonds and flour in one bowl. In another bowl, whisk eggs.
  • Flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. Dip chicken in eggs; then coat with almond mixture.
  • Cook in oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes (on each side)
  • Meanwhile, combine starch, broth, vinegar and brown sugar until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook for 2 minutes whilst stirring-(or until thickened).
  • After chicken is cooked, pour sauce over chicken and enjoy.

Truly, it's so delicious, and you don't feel guilty eating it either!

Oatmeal Fudge Cookies

So, basically every Sunday growing up we'd make a batch of these (if not 2 or 3!) and lots of times in between. They're the Brigmon Oatmeal Fudge Cookies and watch out cause these suckers are addicting!!


1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. cocoa
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, depends on your preference)
1 c. oatmeal (instant is the best)
Foil or Wax Paper


Melt butter on low on stovetop. Once melted add milk. In a separate bowl mix together cocoa and sugar until blended. Stir into butter/milk combo until blended. Turn heat up to medium-high until mixture is rapidly boiling. Once rapidly boiling, let boil for 3 minutes. Then, take off heat and stir in peanut butter until melted. Add oatmeal. Pour cookie size amounts onto foil/wax paper and let cool until hardened. Enjoy!
