An Awesome Meal — Warm and Mild Flavored

This takes about an hour from the time you enter the kitchen till you serve it to your family.

First thing to start — Mild Sauerkraut:
Drain one can of sauerkraut, rinse with cold water, and drain again. Put into medium-sized saucepan. Add 1/4 cup dry minced onion, 1/8 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, 1 bay leaf, and 1 can chicken broth. Boil together till nearly all the liquid is absorbed/evaporated. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Makes 4 servings.

While the saurkraut is cooking, start the Brown Bread Muffins:
Preheat oven to 375. Put 2 cups bran flakes, 1/4 cup raisins, 1 cup milk, and 1/2 cup water into a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and add 1 large grated carrot, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup molasses, 1 egg, and 1-1/2 cups Bisquick. Stir until well blended. Spoon batter into muffin tins that have been lined with cupcake papers. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Check with a toothpick inserted in center of muffin to see if they are done. Makes 15 muffins.

While the muffins are baking, start the Mild Skillet Barbeque Chicken:
Brown 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs on high heat in skillet with 2 tablespoons olive oil, turning frequently. Sprinkle chicken with garlic powder and curry powder. Pour about 1/4 cup red cooking wine over chicken and continue cooking. In a separate bowl, mix together 1 can tomato soup, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 tablespoon cider vinegar, and 1/4 cup water. Pour this over the chicken. Continue to cook the chicken, turning frequently, until it is tender and cooked through. Remove from heat. The extra sauce from the chicken will be used for the beans.

After the chicken is done, put one can of Butter Beans (undrained) into a microwave-safe covered dish and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Drain the beans, and return them to the dish. Spoon the tomato soup mixture from the chicken pan over the beans and stir to coat them.

I re-warmed the saurkraut at this point before serving everything. This was an awesome meal which my family really loved.

    I am trying the chicken as a crock pot meal for tomorrow – I put olive oil in bottom of crock pot & coated both sides of the chicken, then added the red wine, then seasonings, then covered with the soup mixture (I omitted the water from the soup mixture). I'm refrigerating this overnight. I plan to cook it tomorrow on high for 4 hours. We shall see!I did make the sauerkraut and the brown bread muffins BTW. I don't have butter beans in the pantry, so I plan to use the extra bbq sauce over great northern beans. (assuming there IS extra bbq sauce when done in the crockpot w/ 1/4 cup less liquid …)
