If you find yourself addicted to chicken soups of any kind, this lightning fast chicken enchilada soup is a must-make. The soup only takes 15 minutes to make and requires no special ingredients.  Enchilada sauce is combined with cream of mushroom soup, and milk to form the base of the soup.  Black beans, corn, and tomatoes are added for texture.  The recipe uses canned chicken but I recommend using leftover chicken or picking up a rotisserie chicken from the market.

Fried chicken is the quintessential picnic food that is a a guaranteed crowd pleaser This baked version cuts down on calories while still providing that crispy crust that everyone loves. The trick to creating a crust on both sides of the chicken is to preheat the oven with a cookie sheet inside. That way when you are ready to put the chicken in the oven, there will already be a heated surface to crisp the bottom side of the chicken.
