I cut this recipe in half, and made it in the bread machine. It is a very good recipe, and would be tasty made the old fashioned way, too. Arlene/Mo.

Honey Buttermilk Bread Recipe

1 envelope yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water
pinch of ginger (helps activate the yeast)
2 cups warm buttermilk
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled so that it is warm to the touch but not hot.
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
6 cups white bread flour

Mix the ginger, sugar, yeast, and water and set aside for five minutes.

Mix buttermilk, honey, salt, baking soda in with the yeast mixture.

Add three cups of flour and mix until smooth. On an electric mixer it is about 5 minutes on low speed.
Mix in butter until it is totally incorporated into batter.
Now, begin to add the rest of the flour, one cup at a time, keeping mixer on low speed.

When dough pulls from the sides of the bowl remove it from the mixer to a floured surface and knead until elastic and smooth.

Place in greased bowl, turn to grease the top, cover and allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours.

Punch down and form into two loaves. Place in greased loaf pans and grease tops.

Cover, and allow to rise for 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400F. Bake for 30 minutes, covering tops with foil if they brown too fast.
Remove loaves from oven and brush with melted butter.
Allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes.

Smothered Chicken Queso Casserole Recipe

1 tbsp. oil
3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
1 pkg (1 oz.) taco seasoning
1 jar (15 oz.) Tostito's salsa con queso (I used the WM brand)
3/4 cup half and half
1 can (4.5 oz.) chopped green chiles
1 med. red or orange bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2-1/2 cups cooked white rice
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz.)
Chopped tomatoes and chopped fresh cilantro, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350. Spray a 13 X 9 inch baking dish or 2-1/2 qt. casserole with cooking spray.

2. In 12-in skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Sprinkle chicken with taco seasoning mix. Cook chicken in oil 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. Depending on thickness of chicken, it may not be cooked all the way through at this point but will finish baking in the oven.

3. In large bowl, stir together salsa con queso, half and half and chopped green chiles; stir in bell pepper. Reserve one-fourth of the sauce mixture. Stir rice into remaining sauce mixture.

4. Place rice mixture in casserole; top with chicken. Top with reserved sauce mixture, then shredded cheese. Cover with foil.

5. Bake 20 minutes; uncover and bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until sauce bubbles and juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165 F.)

6. Cool 10 minutes. Garnish with tomatoes and cilantro.
