READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by CooksInHeels

This is a tasty main course. Served best with mashed potatoes. If you need to save time, you may also follow the instructions below but fry the chicken rather than boil. Cook chicken for about 25 minutes on medium following all other instruction.

This is a fantastic dish. I was a little concerned about the cooking time; however, the water and dressing kept the chicken nice and moist. I used 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts that were cut into 3rds. They were served on top of mashed potatoes as suggested. A repeat for sure. Made for *PAC Spring 2007*.
