A few weeks ago I met with one of this blog's readers, a lovely woman named Shelley. She gave me some of her mother's treasure trove of old recipes. This recipe for Pineapple-Onion Smothered Chicken (from a box of Lipton Onion Soup) is the first of many to come. So many, in fact, I may have to rename this blog Hey, Shelley's Mom Used to Make That!
Pineapple-Onion Smothered Chicken
recipe from old Lipton soup box
2 tbsp. shortening
2 1/2- to 3-pound chicken, cut into serving pieces
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks, drained
2 1/4 cups water
2 tbsp. flour
In large skillet, melt shortening and brown chicken well; add Lipton Onion Soup Mix, pineapple and 2 cups water (to avoid lumps, I suggest you dissolve the soup mix in the water before adding). Simmer covered, 45 minutes or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken to serving platter. Blend flour with remaining water; stir into liquid in the skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened; pour over chicken. Makes 4 servings.
