Hunninton Chicken and 7 up Cake!

While I still don’t have everything back from my poor harddrive, I do have my recipes!! So without further ado I give you the fifith and final installment of Vintage Recipie Week:

Huntington Chicken

This recipe came from a cookbook that was put together by some teachers at the high school my Grandma taught at in 1968.

Original Recipe:

Ingredients:

1 4 pound hen

1/2 c Cream

2 c Shell macaroni

2 tb Butter

1 container of cream cheese

8 tb Flour

4 c Broth

4 c Bread crumbs

 

Directions:

Stew chicken & season to taste. Cut in cubes. Cook macaroni in salt water & drain. Thicken broth with flour. Mix chicken, macaroni, cheese and broth. Put into 8×12 inch pan. Brown bread crumbs in butter. Add cream & mix. Spread on top of the chicken mixture and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes

 

Modifications for 2009:

I used chicken breasts instead of the hen.  

 

What we thought….

Ummm, yeah, the actual mixture was good, but WAY WAY WAY too much bread crumbs on it.
