Chicken Salad BLT

This is my new favorite sandwich!  I've made it for me and my hubby for lunch after church the last couple of weeks.  It's inspired by a sandwich that I had at our local eating establishment, Hill Diner.

I love BLTS and I love chicken salad sandwiches, so why not combine them?  The chicken salad in this sandwich can be as simple or as gourmet as you feel like making.  I think it's the bacon that makes so yummy!

Sorry that there aren't really any exact amounts in the "recipe".  I guess I assume that if you can cook, and if you regularly check my blog, that you're like me and just add a scoop of this and a little of that according to your taste.

Chicken Salad BLT
recipe by me, Jenny

bread, toasted
mayo (or miracle whip if that's what you like to spread on your sandwiches)
turkey bacon, cooked crisp
chicken salad

Spread mayo on one piece of the toasted bread.  Spread chicken salad on the other toasted bread.  Top the chicken salad mixture with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes and the other piece of toast.

Chicken Salad:
These are the four essential ingredients to your chicken salad (it's yummy just like this):
shredded cooked chicken (I use this shredding method)
mayo (however much you'd like, just so your chicken is nice and moist)
salt and pepper

optional ingredients that I like to add:
minced garlic, or garlic powder
squirt of lemon juice
cucumber, chopped
celery, chopped
green onions, sliced thinly
toasted sugared almonds
you could even add sliced grapes or apple

(In the picture above, my chicken salad consisted of chicken, mayo, salt and pepper, cucumber and green onions.  Delicious!)

Be creative and enjoy!

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
