2 Tablespoons Butter
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast (or 6 skinless chicken thighs)

2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
2 small packages Grands Jr biscuits (10 biscuits)

1. Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a greased slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.
2. Secure lid and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, roll each torn biscuit piece in flour (to prevent them from sticking together), then drop into the slow cooker. Replace lid and cook remaining 30 minutes.

Ambrosia Salad (My Sister-In-Law’s Recipe)

This one has always been a big hit with our family throughout most of the holidays. :)


2 cups shredded coconut
1 8oz container whipped cream, thawed
1 11oz can madarin oranges, drained
3 apples, peeled and chopped
3 bananas, sliced
1 8oz can pineapple chunks, drained
1 10oz jar maraschino cherries, drained
3 cups miniature marshmallows
Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, combine the whipped cream, coconut, chopped nuts (if desired), apples, pineapple, mandarin oranges, marshmallows, and cherries. Mix together well and refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.

Important Tip: Wait until right before serving to peel and add the bananas to help preserve them from turning brown.

There was a time when we did a recipe exchange. This was a lot of fun…plus it was a perfect way to get lots of great recipes to be enjoyed by the whole family.
