After a fire at my friend's home, my heart broke for her and her family. Bringing over this casserole was the one thing I could think of to help her out in a tiny way and let her know I was thinking of her and her family. —Lin Krankel, Oxford, Michigan
My husband used to claim this entree as his specialty until I made it and discovered how quick and easy it is. Our two sons love the juicy chicken while my husband and I enjoy the twist that brown sugar and mustard give the picante sauce.
While this special dish is perfect for a company dinner, it's also just too good not to make often for everyday family meals. We think it is very nice served with some crusty rolls or French bread. —Elizabeth Tokariuk, Lethbridge, Alberta
Classic empanadas from South America are stuffed pastries of beef or chicken, usually fried. That doesn't mean "classic" never changes. Chicken goes well with black beans, corn and jalapenos in this baked version with a Southwestern spin. —Jane McMillan, Dania Beach, Florida
The spicy cheese and Mexican seasoning give plenty of zip to these tender chicken rolls. Round out the meal with rice pilaf and pineapple tidbits. Or microwave frozen broccoli and serve peppermint stick ice cream for dessert.
“This entree combines my husband’s love for mustard with my love for anything sweet (the honey),” writes Lisa Varner, a field editor from Charleston, South Carolina. “The yummy curry taste really sends this dish over the top! We like it with rice pilaf.”
