Good Breakfast

Start the day with an energy-laden breakfast and you'll be better able to cope. There are many ways to do it: add cottage cheese to scrambled eggs or melt a cheese slice on toast. If you're having poached egg on toast, melt Swiss cheese over that and serve with a butter-grilled pineapple ring.

RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

MAIN COURSE

CHICKEN BREASTS EN PAPILOTTE, American

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 4 tablespoons (¾ cup) butter
  • 3 table spoons flour
  • 1 ¼ cups light cream
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of thyme
  • 6 large boned chicken breasts
  • 12 to 18 cleaned mushroom caps
Preparation Instructions

Tear off six 10-inch lengths of 12-inch-wide heavy foil. Fold each piece down the middle and cut a large heart from it.

Make a sauce by cooking green onions in butter until wilted. Stir in flour, cook a minute, then add cream and wine (or all ream if you prefer), salt, pepper, and thyme. Cook, stirring, until thick; cool.

open up each folded foil heart and lightly butter the inside. Then put a breast of chicken on one half, top each with 2 or 3 cleaned mushroom caps, divide the sauce among the six, and fold the other half over. Carefully turn the edges in, making a double fold, and press tightly. When ready to cook, heat oven to 400°, and arrange foil packages on cooky sheets. Cook for 35 to 45 minutes, depending upon how cold the chicken was when put in the oven. Arrange the packets on a platter in pairs, with two straightsides together to make three large silver hearts. Serve in the foil. Makes 6 servings.
