1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Sugar
1 cup Water
1 tbsp Canola Oil

Mix dry ingredients well in a bowl. In another bowl, add oil to water, then pour into a well in the dry ingredients. Beat until well blended and smooth. Cut up 1 1/2 cups of leftover cold chicken into small chunks. Stir together. Deep fry by spoonful.

*I serve this with Minute Rice (I know - I'm cheating, but it's fast!) and cooked oriental veggies from the frozen package, as well as the sweet & sour sauce below. YUMMY!

Sweet + Sour Sauce
1 cup Sugar
1 cup White Vinegar
1 cup Ketchup
1 cup Water

Mix together into saucepan. Cook over low heat until thick and bubbly about 1 hour. Makes about 2 cups. Sauce keeps indefinitely in the fridge.

1 pkg (400 g) large Marshmallows
2/3 cup chunky Peanut Butter (reduced fat not recommended)
½ cup Butter, cubed
¼ cup Corn Syrup
2 tsp Vanilla Extract

4 cups Quick Cooking Oats
1 cup Rice Krispees
1 cup mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips*
½ cup Flaked Coconut
½ cup Sunflower Seeds
½ cup chopped Peanuts
½ cup Raisins (I leave this out!!)
2 tbsp Wheat Germ
2 tbsp Sesame Seeds

In large microwave safe bowl, combine the marshmallows, peanut butter, butter, corn syrup, and vanilla. Microwave uncovered at 70% power for 2 – 3 minutes stirring often until blended. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Spread onto a greased 13 in x 9 in x 2 in baking pan. Bake at 350 for 15 – 20 minutes or until set. Cool and cut into bars. I wrap each individually in saran wrap and then freeze them and take them out as needed.

* I usually use half the amount of chocolate chips the recipe calls for. I’ve also used white chocolate chips which are really good or milk chocolate. All give a slightly different taste.

1 large box of Ice Cream Sandwiches
1 container Cool Whip
Chocolate Sauce and other Ice Cream Toppings

Place enough ice cream sandwiches in a 9x13 dish to cover the bottom of the pan. Spread half the container of cool whip over top (it helps to put the container in the microwave for a few seconds to make it softer and more spreadable). Then place another layer of ice cream sandwiches over top and then a final layer of cool whip. Top with chocolate sauce, sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc. Easy, easy, easy!
