Monica Says: You can also use leftover chicken or any meat, really. If using larger chunks, like chicken, cube the meat.
45 mins 1 lb. ground beef 5 potatoes 4 oz. sliced mushrooms, canned 2 c. fresh or frozen vegetables, your choice 1 can Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup 1 can Condensed Cream of Celery Soup 3 tbsp butter salt & pepper to taste Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9"x13" baking dish with cooking spray. Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving some of the cooking liquid. Peel & quarter the potatoes, then mash with a little of the cooking liquid. Set aside. In a large skillet, cook the meat over medium-high heat. Drain fat from pan. If using leftover meat, heat & add to the skillet. Stir in mushrooms, vegetables, mushroom & celery soups, salt, & pepper; heat through. Pour into prepared baking dish; cover with mashed potatoes & dot with butter. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until potatoes are golden & meat & vegetable mixture is hot & bubbly.

2 c. Captain Crunch cereal
2 c. corn flakes
1 c. milk
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp black pepper
2 lbs chicken breast cut into 1 oz. cube
Vegetable oil for frying
Coarsely grind or crush the two cereals & set aside. Beat the egg with milk & set aside.
Stir together the flour, onion & garlic powders & black pepper.
Dredge the tenders in the flour, then the egg wash, then the cereal mixture.
Either use a deep fryer to fry or pan fry the tenders on low until they are done. Be careful not to turn the temperature up too high or the cereal will start to caramelize.
Chef’s Note: If you like more sweet taste, or less sweet, adjust the cereals to get the right level. Don’t use olive oil for the frying; they don’t taste right.
