For those of you who just can't wait, I'm going to go ahead and give you one of my favorite recipes. I discovered this one back in January and it is delicious. I found it on AllRecipes, which is the link on my side bar. It calls for pork chops, but I used chicken breasts. YUMMY!YUMMY!YUMMY!
Creamy Potato Pork Chop (Chicken) Bake
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
6 pork chops or boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can condensed cream of celery soup (cream of chicken works great, too)

1 (20 oz.) package of frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups French fried onions, divided
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add meat and saute' until browned.
Remove from skillet and drain on paper towel
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix together soup, milk, salt and pepper.
Stir in potatoes, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 cup onions.
Mix together and spread mixture in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Arrange meat over the potatoe mixture.
Cover dish and bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes, or until internal temperature of meat has reached 160 degrees.
