I really liked this page from the May 1978 issue of Family Circle magazine. Besides being cute and full of color, the page actually has some practical, easy-sounding recipes. There are a few I wouldn't mind trying. In fact, I think I'll do the "souped-up chicken" this week! You can click the photo to see a larger version, but I'll also include the recipe below. (However, the magazine page has quite a few other recipes on it that you might find interesting.)
Maybe I'll have more success with this one...
Souped-up Chicken - 1978
Brown a 2 1/2 pound cut-up chicken in 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet; then remove chicken to a 2-quart casserole. In fat remaining in skillet, saute 1 large onion, chopped. Spoon over chicken along with 1 can condensed vegetable beef soup, 1/2 cup water and 1/2 teaspoon crumbled leaf thyme. Cover and bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees F) for 30 minutes or until tender. Makes 6 servings.
