Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Spotlight

Each month I want to spotlight one of Gooseberry Patch's wonderful cookbooks to give you a little sneak peek into the wonderful world of GBP if you aren't familiar with them.
Now that the holidays are behind us & we are embarking on a new year, it's time to get back into a routine. Besides our jobs, there's the house work, yard work, meetings, etc. that are going to be requiring attention, so the last thing anyone wants to do is worry about what to make for dinner at the end of a full day. That's why I chose "Speedy Suppers" to spotlight for January. 
"Speedy Suppers" has great recipe ideas that are not only quick to fix but tasty as well. So pick up a copy for yourself and I guarantee you won't be disappointed or stuck in a meal time rut again.

Chicken Scratch

2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts; sliced
1 pkg. wide egg noodles
1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of chicken & herb soup
1 lb velveeta cheese; cubed
1/3 c. milk
1 jar rotel
2 cans ranch style beans; undrained
salt & pepper to taste
Cajun seasoning

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

In a sauce pot combine soup, cheese, rotel and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until cheese is melted; stirring often to prevent sticking.

Meanwhile, in a large non stick skillet, season chicken with salt, pepper & Cajun seasoning. Cook until no longer pink. Stir in half the cheese mixture and mix well. Add in cooked noodles, ranch beans & remaining cheese sauce. Toss to mix well. Serve warm. Serves 4-6
