Chicken Alexander

This was served on our dinning table last New Year's eve.

You need;
1 whole chicken
2 onions, quartered
2 tsp. butter
1 can cream of chicken soup (I used campbell's)
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 pack frozen mixed vegtables (carrots, peas and corn)
2 pcs. Chorizo de Bilbao, sliced thinly
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup cheese
salt and pepper to taste

For Mashed Potato

6 medium boiled potatoes
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk

Lets make the mashed potato first

Place potatoes and enough water to cover in large pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain potatoes well. Place potatoes back in pot and add milk, butter, salt and pepper. Mash using hand-held masher until smooth. You can also use a hand-held electric mixer for creamier potatoes.

Now if you want an easier mashed potato, you can use the instant Mashed Potato box and just follow the instructions at the back of box. O di ba mas madali.

Now lets start making our Chicken Alexander

Saute onions and garlic. Put diced chicken and chorizo mix. Throw in the frozen vegetables and bell pepper then continue stirring. Add chicken broth then the cream of chicken soup. Simmer until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the saute chicken in a Pyrex dish. Then layer the mashed potato on top. Topped it with grated cheese (I used cheddar cheese)

Bake in a preheated (350 deg F) oven for 20 minutes or until top is slightly brown.

Serve and enjoy!
