Chicken Italian

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by SharleneW

This is a great recipe to pop in the oven and go out for a walk while it cooks. Takes about 10 minutes to get it in the oven and you are on your way. Serve with a green salad and garlic bread and you are set!

This is a GREAT recipe from The Big Book of Casseroles, which I was about to post and found it already on !! It makes a "good friend" gift for new moms, just out-of-the-hospital, or new neighbors. I make the entire recipe in a Dutch oven, then transfer it to a "disposable" (but reuseable) white oven container, which can take 350 degree baking, with a foil cover. (Not the one it comes with.) If you are feeling REALLY helpful, adding a bagged salad, crusty loaf of bread, and a bottle of wine makes you a Special Fairy for the day. haven't found anyone who complained !
