A favorite meal…


This is one of our favorite family dinners, inspired by our favorite family restaurant, The Farmer's Daughter. While it does cook for a total of an hour, it fixes quickly- maybe 5 or 10 minutes, at the most. Just be sure to have the oven preheated before you start dipping the chicken, as you'll want to melt the butter in the pan you're going to use. The kids love the dipping- sometimes I let them do it, depending on how messy I can tolerate the kitchen getting that night. You can use about two pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast in place of the whole chicken, if you'd like. I alternate between the two, depending on what has been on sale or what's in the freezer.  The gravy is great over mashed potatoes. My raised-in-the-South husband says to remind you that it's not a complete meal without biscuits or cornbread. *smiles*

    We make something similar in a pan. And I’ll take mashed taters instead of biscuits any day!
