Food and Fellowship
We have had an interim Preacher for the past year. Dr Crider has done a wonderful job filling in while our church searched for someone to fill this position at our church. After a lot of searching we found and voted on someone we think will help us grow as a church should.
Well as some of you may know, October is Pastor Appreciation Month. We wanted to let Dr. Crider know how much we have appreciated everything he has done for us. So being the Baptist that we are, we ate!
We also wanted to use this time of fellowship and welcome Preacher Faircloth and his family into our church family and every Baptist know the best way to do this is to eat.
I love to get together with my church family. I enjoy standing around and talking to everyone while my child rolls her eyes or shakes her head. I especially enjoyed my daughter telling me that Vickie and I talk as much as Grandma and Betty, Mamie thinks she’s so funny. One thing I can say is I really enjoy the food. We have some of the best cooks at our church and every time we have a meal my entire family, yes including my parent, leave stuffed to the gills.
One of the main dishes I take to church when it’s time to eat is Chicken Casserole. It’s easy to make and I rarely bring home any leftovers which makes me happy! This recipe is also super easy.
4 large chicken breast
8oz sour cream
2 small cans of Cream of Chicken soup
1/2 stick butter (melted)
1 sleeve Ritz Crackers
Preheat oven to 350*. Spray 13 x 9 casserole dish with Pam. Boil chicken until tender. Pick chicken apart and place into the bottom of the casserole dish. Mix 2 cans of soup with 8 oz sour cream and pour over the top of the chicken. Crush up ritz crackers and crumble them on top of the soup mixture. You can take the melted butter and drizzle it over the top or if your like me and forget to melt your butter just slice your butter into small slivers and place all over the top of the crackers.
Bake for approx 45 minutes.
This is a recipe that is easily adjusted…Substitute one of the Cream of Chicken soups for Cream of Mushroom or Celery.
My girls think 8oz of cream cheese is too strong so I don’t put the entire container in there.
You don’t think one sleeve of cracker is enough? Add more…it’s your casserole.
