Autumn Apple-Cheddar Chicken

I am going to share a "Mommy secret" in how you can easily avoid your kiddos all Saturday morning long.
  • Step 1 ... While waiting for kiddos to wake up, Facebook your plans to have them help you with yard work.
  • Step 2 ... Get tired of waiting for kiddos to wake up and leave a note that you are outside doing yard work.
  • Step 3 ... Oh wait! There is no step 3 because you'll never see your kiddos till you come back inside four hours later.
I now see the error of my ways as my kiddos get online and check Facebook before coming downstairs. Facebook is evil. *lol* BUT my yard looks beautiful and leaf free. I did nothing else for the rest of the day until it was time to start dinner. About dinner. I give up cooking with apples. Christopher said "We just want normal food for dinner". *sigh* I thought it was a good recipe but my family did not. I think they are plotting to run me out of the kitchen.
Recipe from Gooseberry Patch Homemade Harvest.
Download "Autumn Apple-Cheddar Chicken"
5 to 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 sleeves round buttery crackers, crushed
1/2 cup plus 3 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
10-3/4 oz can Cheddar cheese soup
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 Golden Delicious apples, cored and sliced
Preheat oven to 350 ⁰F. Place chicken in a large pot of boiling water. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes; set aside. Combine crumbs with 1/2 cup butter; mix thoroughly. Add remaining butter to a saucepan; stir in flour and cook about one minute, stirring often. Add milk, soup and cheese; stir to blend until cheese is melted. Place chicken in a greased 13"x9" baking pan. Cover chicken with cheese sauce, top with sliced apples and sprinkle with cracker mixture. Bake, covered for 35 to 40 minutes.

It sounds really good! What was weird about it? Maybe leave out the apples?

Oy, these people and their picky ways! What are we going to do with them?
I was making my menu earlier and realized there was at least one meal that Alex won't eat. I think I'll pick up a package of corndogs while I'm at the commissary for just such an emergency. It's exhausting!

Reesa, they didn't care for the texture of the apple slices. my oldest liked everything else and suggested using cubed potatoes instead of apples.
Paula, isn't it crazy? i don't mind having something else on hand for the kiddos when i make something that i consider "grown up" food. but i hate when it's a fight and their mind is made up that it's gross before they even try it.
