    Bill's Salsa Chicken & Rice

    I've been making this for years, and thought I'd share it, finally. Here's my recipe and the quantity I usually make:

  • Six chicken breasts with skin, baked in plastic cooking bags at 400°F for about an hour (depending on your oven).
  • Six servings of rice. I prefer brown, but white works just fine.
  • Before cooking rice, add 2-3 shakes of each of the following spices to the water in which you'll be cooking the rice:
  • crushed red pepper
  • garlic salt
  • Creole seasoning (I use McCormick's)

    Once both the chicken and rice are done, de-bone and de-skin the chicken and mix it in with the rice, using the same pot in which you cooked the rice.

  • Finally, stir in:
  • one can of condensed Cream of Celery (or Mushroom) soup
  • four ¼-inch-thick slices of cheddar and/or mozzarella cheese (from standard "brick" of cheese)
  • 1½ cups of salsa (I prefer Ortega)
  • handful of fresh mushrooms

    And that's it! Formerly known as "Bill's Chicken Glop," I finally came up with a better name.


    Palacsintas (pronounced pah-lah-CHIN-tuhz)

    Markowitz recipe. Makes about 4-5 palacsintas.

  • beat well 2 eggs
  • Add a pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • beat/mix in blender until has a loose consistency.
  • Add ½ cup water and some flour while mixing, until thick enough
  • As a test, dip spoon into mix and let the mixture drip
  • Make sure it does not drip too fast or too slow
  • If too thick, add water
  • If mixture splashes, add some more flour.
  • Pour some oil to frying pan then pour mix. As soon as it forms and start to show large bubbles, turn it over for a minute or so. Take it out of the frying pan and dry it on a paper towel if you wish.
  • Stuff it with your choice: seasoned mushrooms, salty cheese, sweet cheese etc.
