ICE CREAM TACOS

8  Frozen Round Waffles (thawed)

1  Qt. Chocolate Ice Cream (softened)

1/2 Cup Miniature Marshmallows

1/2 Cup Hot Fudge Sauce (warmed)

8  Maraschino Cherries

Warm (don't toast!) the waffles. While still warm, gently fold each waffle in half, like a taco shell. Place waffles in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, squeezing them into tight rows so they retain their new shape.

In a large bowl, combine the ice cream and marshmallows until well mixed, then evenly scoop into the waffle "shells." Spoon the fudge sauce over the ice cream and top each with a cherry.

Cover the tacos and freeze until firm. Serve, or keep frozen until ready to serve. Yields: 8 tacos

NOTE: Go wild! Add any of your other favorite toppings, like maybe flaked coconut with green food color to look like shredded lettuce.

CREAM CHEESE CHICKEN WITH BROCCOLI

4  lbs. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (cut into 1⁄2" pieces)

1  Tbsp. Olive Oil

1  pkg. (1 oz.) Italian Salad Dressing Mix

2  Cups Mushrooms (sliced)

1  Cup  Onion (chopped)

1  Can (103⁄4 oz.) Condensed Low-fat Cream of Chicken Soup (undiluted)

1  Bag (10 oz.) Frozen Broccoli Florets (thawed)

1  pkg. (8 oz.) Low-fat Cream Cheese (cubed)

1⁄4 Cup Dry Sherry (or chicken broth)

Hot Cooked Pasta

Toss chicken with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian salad dressing mix. Place in 5-quart crock pot slow cooker. Cover; cook on low for 3 hours.

Coat large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add mushrooms and onion; cook 5 minutes over medium heat or until onions are tender, stirring occasionally.

Add soup, broccoli, cream cheese and sherry to skillet; cook and stir until hot. Transfer to crock pot for the last 1 hour of cooking. Cover. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta. Yield: 10-12 servings.


HAM & CHEESE STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS

1/4 cup grated Swiss, Monterey Jack or part-skim mozzarella cheese

2    tbsp. ham (chopped)

2    tsp. Dijon mustard

Freshly ground pepper to taste

4    boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 to 1 1/4 lbs. total)

1    egg white

1/2 cup plain dry breadcrumbs

2    tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 400°. Use a baking sheet with sides and lightly coat it with cooking spray.

Mix cheese, ham, mustard and pepper in a small bowl. Cut a horizontal slit along the thin, long edge of a chicken breast half, nearly through to the opposite side. Making a pocket in the chicken breast to hold the stuffing is easy with a good, sharp, thin-bladed knife. Open up the breast and place one-fourth of the filling in the center. Close the breast over the filling, pressing the edges firmly together to seal. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts and filling.

Lightly beat egg white with a fork in a medium bowl. Place bread crumbs in a shallow glass dish. Hold each chicken breast half together and dip in egg white, then dredge in bread crumbs. (Discard leftovers.)

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts; cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Place the chicken, browned-side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center or until an instant-read thermometer registers 170°, about 20 minutes. Yield: 4 servings
