    This recipe is one that my friend, Susie Patterson, gave me a few years ago. We love this with steamed fresh asparagus and roasted new potatoes.

      This chicken was really yummy. Everyone enjoyed it for dinner tonight. I loved the light crispy batter it had and the herbs in it were great, thanks!
