Fair Food Recipes

On september 18, I’ll be cooking at the Washington State Fair.  Yes, it used to be called the Puyallup Fair, but I’ve been called different things too – So meet me at the Fair – Great place, especially if you’re using an assumed name.

Here are the recipes:

These teeny tiny doughnuts are about the size of a quarter.

Chicken Mixture

83e98993-c5b3-4fef-9c1f-8860d74558641 tablespoon vegetable oil

12 oz package grilled natural chicken strips, cut into cubes

or 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces

1 tablespoon dried minced onions

1 cup frozen peas and carrots (or green beans or broccoli bits)

1 can Cream of Chicken soup.

½ cup heavy cream, or milk, or chicken broth. Pick one.

½ teaspoon salt (I don’t add salt to this dish)

¼ teaspoon ground thyme

1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese (4 oz)


Baking Mixture

½ cup original Bisquick™mix

½ cup milk

2 eggs




  • HEAT OVEN TO 375 ˚ Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.


  • In your favorite 10 inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center. (If chicken is already cooked just toss for a couple of minutes. Add onions and soup: heat till simmering. Add frozen vegetables and seasonings. Heat until hot, stirring occasionally thin with cream or chicken broth til it’s warm through and thick, but not gooey. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in cheese.


  • In medium bowl, stir baking mixture ingredients with whisk or fork until blended. Spoon 1 scant tablespoon baking mixture into each muffin cup. Top with about ¼ cup chicken mixture. Spoon 1 tablespoon baking mixture onto chicken mixture in each cup. It won’t look as if anything good can possibly come from it.


  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center come out clean. Cool 5 minutes. With thin knife, loosen sides of pies from pan; remove from pan and place top sides up on cooling rack. Cool 10 minutes longer and serve.
