I.B., of Ketchikan, e-mails: "I really enjoy cooking, but I use simple recipes. This recipe was given to me about 10 plus years ago by a friend and is a regular at our dinner table."
3 tablespoons margarine
6 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
¼ cup brandy
2 (10 ¾-ounces each) cans cream chicken soup
½ cup cashew nuts (unsalted)
Melt margarine in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and brown on all sides.
Place chicken breasts in baking pan.
Add brandy and undiluted soup to skillet; stir and scrape up any brown bits on bottom of pan. Pour over chicken breasts.
Cover and bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 1 hour.
Remove cover and sprinkle with nuts. Bake an additional 15 minutes.
Serve with rice or noodles.
Note: If chicken breasts are rather small reduce cooking time to 30-40 minutes. Check to make sure no pink color remains.
