    Minxkat1's Note:

    This is one of my favorite ways to 'do up' chicken. I adapted it from an Old Bon Appetite recipe. I usually serve it with Italian bread, steamed green beans, and mashed potatoes to soak up the flavorful sauce. I used Lennie's wonderful Turkey Stock in place of the Chicken broth the last time I made this - it worked wonderfully!

      Fast and easy. I also served with mashed potatoes. I might toss in some garlic next time for just a bit more taste.
