6 Chicken breasts (or desired pieces), with bone and skin                 5 TAB & 1 tsp Hungarian Blend seasoning
1 large Onion, chopped                                                                                         4 Hungarian yellow wax peppers, sliced thin
1/2 to 3/4 cup water                                                                                               1 to 2 tubs (16 oz.) Sour Cream
2 small Roma tomatoes (or 2 from a can of whole, no salt tomatoes), sliced thin
Skin chicken. In large frying pan, cook chicken skins to render fat. Remove skins and add chopped onions. Cook to translucent and stir in 5 Tab Hungarian Blend seasoning (reserve the 1 tsp for later). Push onions to the side and brown chicken in same pan. After chicken is browned, spread onions around and add 1/2 cup water, tomatoes (sliced thin), and Hungarian peppers (seeded and sliced thin). Cover and simmer on low for 1 hour (add a little more water if necessary). Remove chicken and make sure heat is on low (if you raised it earlier). Add remaining 1 tsp Hungarian Blend seasoning and 1 tub sour cream. Stir well being careful not to boil. If you have an emersion blender, blend to incorporate. If you don't have an emersion blender a potato masher works also. Add enough sour cream from second tub to get the taste and consistency you desire. Replace chicken in sauce to coat well. Serve with mashed potatoes or Nokedli (German spaetzle is closest and works well. )

Heat large skillet and add olive oil (enough to brown chicken). Salt & pepper chicken tenders and brown in oil to get some gool color on meat. Add as much chicken stock as you would like for sauce (more if you are serving on pasta or rice, less if just on top of chicken).

Push chicken off to the side and add as much cream cheese you needed to get the consistency you like for the sauce. Serve over pasta, rice or alone with side dish.

4 medium potatoes                                                             1 can crabmeat (6.5 oz. or 1 cup fresh), picked over
1/4 cup grated onion                                                        1-2 cups grated cheese (swiss, jack, cheddar, several types)
1/2 cup whipping cream                                                    1/4 to 1/2 cup Deliciously Garlic garlic butter
1/2 to 1 tsp Special House Blend               Paprika for garnish                    
Set oven to 325 degrees. Scrub potatoes well and dry thoroughly. Put in oven, unwrapped, and bake until you can pierce them easily with a fork (when about half done, pierce skins so steam will escape). When done, remove from oven and cool until you can handle them easily. In the meantime, open can of crabmeat, drain and pick it over to remove any stiff cartilage. Cut an oaval in teh top of potato and discard patch. Carefully scoop out teh insides, taking care you don't break the skin. Thoroughly mash the potato, Deliciously Garlic garlic butter,  Special House Blend and whipping cream until a medium soft consistency is obtained. With a large spoon, fold in remaining ingredients, adding crabmeat last (be careful not to break the meat too much). Refill potato shells and sprinkle with paprika. Reheat in a very hot oven, 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Any extra filling can be heated in an ovenproof baking dish, uncovered.
 
NOTE: These can be frozen. Just thaw and reheat at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
