I ordered this entree at a restaurant on our first wedding anniversary. It was so delicious, I couldn't wait to re-create the recipe at home. Every time I make it, my husband and I recall a very special evening.
THIS IS an old recipe that has been passed down in our family through my sister-in-law. When I was a child, she did most of the cooking in our house, and this was my favorite meal. The variety of vegetables makes this an attractive dish, and the cooking time is minimal. —Ruby Williams
I've prepared this dish for a tableful of people, but it's also easy to fix just for two. If you like different vegetables, simply add them along with the other ingredients. My side dishes for this meal are toasted bread and salad. —Shirley Lazor

FOR US, chicken breasts prepared this way is a nice reminder of when abalone was found in markets and menus on the West Coast.
These days, abalone is scarce, so my son discovered a way to prepare chicken to resemble our favorite food. It's a wonderful, simple recipe.

I CAME UP with this recipe several summers ago. I had a ham in the refrigerator and was trying to avoid heating up the kitchen by preparing it in the oven. The stovetop was the solution.
Ever since, this recipe has been my standby for when I have leftover ham. Served over rice, it's delicious! —Diane Widmer

SINCE our three daughters are now away from home, I cook just for the two of us. However, sometimes I like to prepare larger amounts while I'm in the kitchen so I can freeze some for later.
These cabbage rolls make a hearty and tasty meal when accompanied by slices of old-fashioned rye bread. —Lucille Proctor
WHEN I was a teenager, I cooked dinner every night for our family of four...Mom, Dad, Grandmother, who lived next door, and myself.
Through the years, I have modified and changed this recipe for two people to better fit our tastes. That's one of the great things about this dish. It's easy to do just that!

I'VE SHARED this recipe with many friends who also cook for two. We all agree - small recipes are hard to find!
This dish remains one of my favorites since it takes little effort to prepare and is so tasty. Plus, if you are serving a larger group, it is easy to double.

IT'S EASY to cook chicken to serve any number of people and now that we are "two", we have chicken often.
I made up this recipe myself because I love cranberries. This dish is tangy and tart...an interesting combination of flavors.
