Bohannan Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Irishcolleen

This is a family recipe, handed down from my Great Grandmother Bohannan. That's why I call it "Bohannan Chicken." I like to serve it with a nice fruit salad of some sort, and petit pois.

This was quite tasty - I liked all the vegetables though I did not add the mushrooms - don't care for them at all. I also like that this is a one-pot meal - makes cooking in the evenings after work a lot easier. Served this over wild rice with a green salad - great meal. Thanks for posting - made for Spring PAC 2012.
