    Barb Witherspoon's Note:

    Cherokee Grill is our favorite restaurant in Gatlinburg, TN. If you're ever in the Smoky Mountains, check it out! Beautiful restaurant, great food. This is my favorite dish there; they posted it on their website. This recipe makes a LOT, so if you are making it for a small group or family, you might want to half it.
