Easy Garlic Chicken

I made this the other night and it only took about 15 minutes total.

What you need:
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
3 Tbsp. butter
2 tsp. garlic powder -- I am not a huge garlic fan so I added a little less, just add to taste :)
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. seasoning salt

What to do:
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and sprinkle with garlic powder, seasoning salt and onion powder. (I mixed them all together before I sprinkled...) Saute about 10 to 15 minutes on each side, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

This serves about 4 and I think it would be really good with rice-a-roni or potatoes of some kind. I just served mine with green beans and bread and butter.... This was such and easy meal. Enjoy!

(By the way, I got this recipe from http://allrecipes.albersons.com)

Pretzel Jello Salad

Ok Ladies... really... It's been over a month and no new recipes? We are seriously slacking. :)

This probably isn't a new recipe to a lot of you... But it's one of my favorites to make for when we have people over, or if I'm in charge of bringing a family a meal. It's technically a jello salad... but it's definitely good enough to be dessert! :) There's never any leftovers with this dish! :)

Pretzels (Somebody asked how many- & I don't know! :) Just enough so after you crush them, they cover the bottom of the pan... I just guess)
1 Cube Butter
1 c. Sugar, plus 4 tsp Sugar
12 oz. Cool Whip
8 oz. Softened Cream Cheese
6 oz. Strawberry Jello
16 oz. Frozen strawberries (sliced)

*Crush Pretzels in Bottom of 9x13 pan.
*Melt butter with 4 tsp. Sugar.
*Pour over pretzels and bake at 400 for 6 min.
*Cool in refrigerator (I put mine in the freezer- Make sure it's completely cooled or it melts the next layer and everything meshes together!)
*Beat softened cream cheese, cool whip, and 1 cup Sugar on med/low until smooth
*Spread over COOLED pretzels. (Make sure to seal all the edges so the jello doesn't get into the pretzels)
*Mix Jello with 2 cups Boiling water. Stir until well dissolved.
*Stir in frozen sliced strawberries.
*Let Jello partial set (3 minutes or so) then pour over cream cheese mixture.
*Put in Fridge and let set for 3-4 hours.
