Bathtub and Best Chicken you Ever Had. :) lol  
Okay! Question... Do you guys know of a way to plug the upper drain in the tub? I've been searching all over to no avail. I read this conserves water and it's way down low in my tub...


Do you guys have the recipe for the best chicken dish you have EVER had? I'd LOVE to know it... I have a friend coming over tonight who's not such a beef girl and it'll be her first time over... I wanna make a good impression. :)

*edit* You guys are AMAZING! My sweetie and I will be eating good for a long time... I'll have to make a few of these for my parents/in laws too... man.. yumm!

I unscrewed mine and turned it upsidedown and rescrewed it, but it was fairly high up on the tub.

wow! Thank you! Those are awesome and exactly what I was looking for...

Curious.. what did you search for? I tried "Upper Drain Bathtub" and all kinds of stuff like that

We call it an overflow drain in our house, but I know there's another term. I'll have to think about it.

awesome icon!!

best chicken i've had...my mom calls it party chicken, and my fiance's mom calls it company chicken.

i don't have the recipe, but maybe someone else will. you set the chicken on dried beef and wrap it in bacon (yeah, this is why i only have it like once a year..). the sauce is cream of chicken (and maybe celery??) and it's served ontop of white rice. it's soooo good. kinda greasy too. but good.

it takes about 3 hours to cook though..

Essentially sweet and sour chicken. Really tasty.

My favorite chicken dish is Monterey Chicken Bake (Hubby's favorite, so easy and effortless!)...here's the recipe:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 to 6 slices of bacon
barbecue sauce
8 oz. shredded monterey jack cheese
*2 or 3 each green onion stems
large bottle of hidden valley ranch dressing
McCormick Grill Mates barbecue seasoning (to taste)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Lightly spray bottom of medium to large baking dish with regular cooking
spray. Chop green onion stems into shallots - as much as you desire.

Fry bacon on stove until crispy. Lay flat on paper towels to absorb grease.
After 15 minutes, crumble bacon and set to the side.

Brush both sides of chicken breasts with barbecue sauce. Lay chicken flat in
a shallow baking dish and season with the barbecue seasoning. Flip and
season opposite sides.

Let chicken set for 10 minutes. Brush each chicken breast with barbecue
again. Pour Hidden Valley Ranch dressing over each chicken breast, covering

Place crumbled bacon pieces over chicken in dish. Add shredded Monterey Jack
cheese (make sure to completely cover the chicken with cheese) and shallots
over dish.

Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes uncovered. Chicken is
done when middle is no longer pink. Enjoy!!

oh my gosh! This sounds sooooooo good :D
Country Girlskymonkey on February 15th, 2006 09:19 pm (UTC)
it is so sinful. :) It may be fattening but it is so worth it. :-D I usually serve it with a side of baked potatoes or mashed potatoes (loaded)

My sweetie plugs up the upper drain with clear silicone in every apt she rents. She says it peels right out when you move, so you aren't charged for messing up the drain, but you don't have to deal with one of those covers every time you want to take a bath, either :)

As for chicken recipes, I have a killer one, but it's probably too late in the day for you to do it now...throw a whole bunch of chicken boobs into a crock pot. Pour a jar of Trader Joe's tomatillo salsa over top and a few spoons of crushed garlic. Cover and cook all day. The chicken falls apart into shreds that are great for tacos, nachos, sopes, whatever. It's juicy and flavorful and almost no fat. It also freezes good if you want to make a big batch and then freeze several smaller containers of it (like I do :) )

This Cheddar Chicken recipe is simple and tasty:

Spinach/Cheese Stuffed Chicken
I stuff chicken breasts with a package of chopped frozen spinach (thawed, drained) mixed with a couple of dollops of sour cream and a couple of cups of cheddar. Whatever's left of the "spinach stuffing" afterward, I just put over the top of the chicken, and then I bake on 350 for about a 1/2 hour, until the cheese starts to look toasty. Really simple, but oh so good.

I've also done it with feta and a little bit of oregano for a Greek-style, and with a dollop of marinara, garlic, mozzarella, and Italian seasoning for a "Florentine" style - or add monterey jack cheese and sundried tomatoes for "California" style. Really, it's a very versatile, you just adjust the ingredients slightly for different flavors. The Sour Cream is important, though - it holds the spinach together. For a low fat version, I've also used plain yogurt, but it's not as good - if you want low fat, just get low fat sour cream.

just google: bathtub overflow cover

SUPER easy but tasty chicken: 4 chicken breasts in a baking dish, dump salsa and cream (or sour cream) on top in equal parts (I usually throw 200mL of each), and bake at 400 for an hour.

chicken parmesan is my very favorite. Buy some Progresso bread crumbs and a recipe for it should be on the container. It is insanely easy. :)

How would plugging the overflow conserve water?
Brie Pfoob on February 16th, 2006 06:43 am (UTC)
well... I some times forget to turn off my water at the right time... it runs over... this way it'll avoid it
Betty: faucetblowtorch_betty on February 16th, 2006 03:18 pm (UTC)
But really, by filling the tub higher than it was meant to be, you're using even more water, no?

i use plumber's putty to cover my overflow drain. you can find it in any hardware store - usually a small tub is around a dollar. it looks like gray play dough, and comes right off. not the most attractive thing ever, but it's removeable, reusable, and cheap.
