CHICKEN EUGENE, CROCK POT TEXAS POTATOES & SUNDAY DINNER


Love Sunday Dinners when the boys are all around the table and the day is laid back. In honor, I'm bringing you TWO recipes today for Tasty Tuesday: Chicken Eugene and Crock Pot Texas Potatoes. This meal is a flavorful, easy and a grand one for Sunday afternoons. Growing up we had Sunday dinners often at my Great Grandmothers house. My fondest memories of those dinners were the fact that she would make all this wonderful food, including a to die for fruit salad, but despite everyone bringing a dish as well, she would always call my dad and tell him to bring a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, you know, in case there wasn't enough food (Which was never the case). 
So on our way, we'd run by KFC just for grandma. 


I'm out of a high chair here, (early 70's) but not quite ready for a big girl chair 
so fluffy brown pillow for the boost!


Green beans with bacon and crescent rolls are a great compliment to this meal.


First up is the flavorful Chicken Eugene. I love how this cooks slowly in the oven for a few hours on a low temp so it melts in your mouth.

What you'll need

CHICKEN EUGENE

Ingredients
8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 slice of bacon
1 jar dried beef
1 can cream of mushroom
8 oz of sour cream

Directions
Preheat the oven to 275°. Lay the dried beef slices in the bottom of a 9 x 13 glass dish. Wrap a slice of bacon around each breast and lay on top of the beef. In a medium bowl, mix the cream of mushroom soup and sour cream and spread on top of the chicken breasts. Bake uncovered for three hours. Or until the chicken is very tender. 


Second up is the always pleasing Crock Pot Texas Potatoes. What I love about serving the potatoes with the Chicken Eugene is that the 3 hours it's slowly cooking in the oven, these potatoes are in the crock and ready at the same time. 3 hours on low was perfect for these.

What you'll need

CROCK POT TEXAS POTATOES

Ingredients
One bag hashbrowns potatoes O'Brien
One can cream of chicken soup
8 ounces of sour cream
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut up ham pieces, optional

Directions 
Mix everything well in place and a crack on except for one cup of the cheese. I did add some leftover deli ham, cut up small to this mixture. Cook on low for three hours, about the same amount of time you have the chicken in the oven. Don't over cook or it will stick to the sides. Top with remaining cheese about a half an hour before the chicken is ready.

The leftovers, if there are any, from this meal are fantastic!!
Do you make a Sunday Dinner? Does it conjour memories forms the past?

  10. I love Sunday dinners . . . we go between eating at home with friends and eating at our favorite Mexican restaurant, depending on the schedule! These look delicious and right up my family's alley! And funny enough about KFC, my husband loves it. For his birthday dinner this year, he wanted a huge bucket of KFC and sides. Seriously? Ha!

Chris once made a chicken dish very similar to this and he said that his grandpa used to make it. I love family recipes, it is a nice/fun tradition to carry on. Thank you for sharing!! :-)

  17. We used to have Sunday dinners at my Maw-Maw's house when I was little too! Now we have family dinner at my mom's on Saturdays. It is fun to get together and have a big (usually HUGE) meal. Your grandma sounds like a woman after my own heart, always worrying about there being enough food even though there is more than enough. An extra bucket of chicken never hurt anyone, right?! This dinner looks fabulous. I know we would love it and I'll have to try it soon!

  30. Sunday dinner at my Mema and Grandaddy's was always plentiful like that. And most of the sides came from the garden! No one wanted to sit by Grandaddy, though, because he'd eat off of your plate! lol! These recipes look good, thanks for sharing!

  42. These look yummy. I'm sorry but in the directions, I don't understand "and a crack on". Is that a Southern recipe term? Could you elaborate?

  43. Hey friend! My husband just read your Meet & Greet Monday post & requested this Sunday dinner soon. I've never used dried beef. Where can I find that in the grocery store?
