My husband and I operate a very busy farm. There are days when there's just no time left for cooking. It's really nice to be able to come into the house at night and smell this chicken cacciatore meal simmering—dinner is a simple matter of dishing it up. It's very easy to make, but it's also special enough to serve company. —Aggie Arnold-Norman, Liberty, Pennsylvania
I love the challenge of finding creative new ways to serve foods. So putting peaches in chicken salad seems only natural. My husband and I enjoy this hearty cool salad on hot summer evenings.—Elizabeth Waden, Timmonsville, South Carolina
"This fantastic chicken dish is a variation on a recipe from one of my favorite microwave cookbooks," writes Karen Badger of Mahomet, Illinois. "Just toss together a salad, and your family can sit down to a satisfying meal in minutes."
I depend on this recipe when I get home late from work and my hungry family wants something delicious for dinner. It's quick, too, because it uses canned chicken and fresh mushrooms that I buy pre-sliced.
This is a full-flavored, all-in-one chicken casserole. It is one of my go-to recipes when serving a large group, since I know how much my friends and family enjoy it. This can be made up hours before it cooks. Just refrigerate and let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before baking.—Louise Warren Blades, Eizabeth City, North Carolina
All the fruit in this salad gives it a natural sweetness. I use whole wheat pasta for added fiber. Since I purchase cooked chicken breast at the store, I only have to cook the pasta for a healthy, delectable dinner. With minimal cooking this is great for the summer. —Regina Reynolds, Struthers, Ohio
