Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup melted butter or oil
2 eggs beaten
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix eggs and butter or oil. Add dry ingredients and mix all together well. Drop onto lightly greased cookie sheet (silpat) and bake 9-11 minutes.

This is the first time I've tried a cake-mix cookie. My family gobbled them up.

Pineapple Chicken

6 chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
1 package onion soup mix
1 16 ounce jar apricot pineapple preserves
1 bottle Russian dressing
1 can chunk pineapple, drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange chicken breasts in a large baking dish (I flattened mine first with a meat mallet.) Season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl mix remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. (I had pineapple rings, so I just arranged a can on top). Bake uncovered 45-60 minutes or till at least 160 degrees internal temperature.

This makes a lot of sauce, so I suggest serving it with rice. This was a dish everyone really liked. The kids ate it right up. Enjoy!
