Chicken Strata from Hungary to France
My first time overseas was living for a year in Hungary. This blog is dedicated to Debbie Booze who gave me this packet of recipes 23 years ago! It's called the ESI Survival Cookbook. It was written mostly for single folks, so you might have to double if you have a family. I have kept it all this time, because these recipes work. If you need simple and the metric system and a way to use baguettes or fresh European bread with a shelf life of one day.... voila! We ate this four times for a family of four, so, it makes a lot, which gives you a break from cooking. No doubling needed. I used frozen vegetables, but you could used canned or fresh. I omitted the mayo, which I regret b/c it lost the creamy factor, although the taste stayed. Also, I would sauté the onions next time. But, the glory of this is also that it is a one dish meal!! I am in France for language school with my children, so time is of the essence!
If you don't have cream soup or the language skills to figure out what IS cream soup, here is the adaption for this. Also, if you are in a place making your own bread or can buy croutons, that would be the substitution.
