This great recipe was given to me by a friend years ago, and it's been a family favorite ever since. My daughters enjoy making this dish in their own homes and get the same enthusiastic compliments I always do! For a change, I sometimes substitute frozen carrots for half of the broccoli.
It’s hard to beat this foil-packet meal from Stacey Smith in Batavia, New York for convenience…or even campfire fun.
TIP: USE THE REMAINING ½ CAN OF SOUP (AND HALF THE WATER CALLED FOR) TO MAKE A SINGLE SERVING OR TO ADD TO GRAVY.
Frozen broccoli and leftover chicken get an easy—but elegant—treatment in a dish from Bertille Cooper of St. Inigoes, Maryland. She dresses them up with a saucy blend of cream soup and mayonnaise, then covers it all with a golden, cheesy crumb topping.

This rich satisfying dish, adapted from a recipe given to me by a friend, is my husband's favorite. I usually serve it on his birthday. It's loaded with scallops, shrimp and crab in a creamy sauce. I consider this the "crown jewel" in my repertoire of recipes. —Elena Hansen, Ruidoso, New Mexico
Shrimp Scampi looks like you fussed, but it’s a snap to prepare. Lemon and herbs enhance the shrimp, and bread crumbs add a pleasing crunch. Served over pasta, this main dish is pretty enough for company. —Lori Packer, Omaha, Nebraska
