Judy's Foodies Favorite Chicken Sandwiches!

                                                                         
Thinly Sliced Sauteed Chicken Breast with Italian dressing , gooey cheese, lettuce, tomato, & a good bun make this a favorite at our house! EASY TOO!
Thin Sliced White Meat Chicken Breast 1/4 pound per sandwich!
1/4 Cup Italian Dressing, I use Good Seasons Robusto!
2 Cups Provolone or any good Italian Cheese shredded or sliced
Lettuce, Tomato, Sliced Onion, Peppers sweet or hot as you wish, any or all of these + Mayo if you wish!
In a large skillet saute your chicken in the Italian dressing until cooked & chicken is no longer pink. I cook them on medium heat about 15 minutes turning 1/2 through the cooking. Cover each chicken slice with the cheese cover the pan with a lid & let cheese melt about 3 to 5 minutes. On really good sandwich buns slather on some may if you like, & I like! Then lettuce on the bottom bun over that may, 2 slices of the chicken & then the remaining toppings! Serve hot with frys, onion rings or chips! YUMMY!  

Beef & Chicken Pizza

                                                                         
This Pizza is a meat & cheese lovers dream!

Crust:
3 Cups Flour
2 TSP. Sugar
1 Packet Yeast
Stir all together & the add 1&1/3 Cup Cold Water. Stir together. Let sit 10 minutes & the add,
1 TBS. Oil
1 TSP Salt Stir together Cover & let this rise until double. I turn my oven on to warm, let it preheat, then turn off oven & let dough sit in the oven to raise. It usually is double in about one hour! While dough is rising I make the meat topping.
MEAT TOPPING:
1 Pound Lean Ground Beef
1 Pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast.
Star to brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Once it has begun to brown add the chicken & cook both until no longer pink. Chop/shred the chicken as it cooks. This will take about 25 minutes. Break up the burger as it is browning. You want bite size pieces for both meats. Sprinkle meat 2 teaspoons of Italian Seasonings. Once cooked turn off the heat & set aside until you are assembling your Pizza's. 
PIZZA SAUCE, I use 2 jars of Prego Pizza Sauce!
Once dough is double in size punch dough down & divide dough in half. On a well flour surface, I roll the dough out on my large baking sheet that does not have an edge. I bake the pizza right on this sheet too! Roll dough out to about an 18 inch round with a the edge thicker for that Pizza Crust look! Now cover the top with Pizza Sauce I use 3/4 of a jar on 1 Pizza. Then cover the sauce with 1/2 of the meat mixture. Now cover this with 3 Cups of your favorite cheese. I use 2 Cups Pizza Cheese Shredded Cheese & 1 Cup Italian Cheese Shredded. Sprinkle the top with Parsley Flakes & more Italian Seasonings! Make the second Pizza the same way. Bake at a preheated oven temp of 450 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes. I rotate my sheets 1/2 through the baking to make sure each Pizza has a crispy brown bottom crust! This makes 2 HUGE MEATY PIZZAS. If you wish BAKE ONE & freeze the other one unbaked to be used at a later time! But we love our PIZZA PARTIES! HAPPY PIZZA NIGHT FOODIES!

Pennsylvania Dutch Sour Cream Apple Crumb Pie

                                                                                         
Yummy Pie & BEAUTIFUL!

Creamy filling with tender apples & spicy crumbs all packed into a tender flaky crust!
CRUST:
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1/4 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Shortening
Cut together until you have fine crumbs
Add 3 to 4 Tablespoons Cold water & 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla, Stir just until it pulls together to become dough. Roll out on a well floured surface to make a 9 inch crust. Line your pan with the dough. Trim crust & flute your edges. Now preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lay a piece of foil gently in the crust. Fill the foil lined crust with 2 Cups of raw rice. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven & gently lift foil & rice out of the pan. This is called blind baking & it ensures a flaky bottom crust! Now set crust aside & make the filling & crumbs. Set oven to 375 degrees so it is ready to bake your amazing pie!

FILLING:
6 Macintosh or Granny Smith Apples peeled cored & sliced thin! I use Macintosh!
In a large bowl, I just use the bowl I made the crust in, stir together the following:
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2/3 to 1 Cup Sugar, depends on how tart your apples are!
3 Heaping Tablespoons flour
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon OR use 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon & 1/4 Teaspoon each Nutmeg, Ginger, Cloves, & Allspice. I just use Cinnamon
Dash of Salt
2 Eggs beaten
1 Cup Sour Cream
1 Tablespoon Melted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Whisk that all together. Add your prepared apples & stir well. Dump them into your pie shell. Top with the following Crumb Topping!

CRUMB TOPPING:
1 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Dash of Salt
Stir all together & then cut in 4 Tablespoons Butter until you have fine crumbs! Again I just use the same bowl I made the dough & filling in! Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the filled pie! Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until the pie is bubbling & nicely browned! Cool & serve! THIS IS GREAT ELEGANT APPLE PIE!
