    Chef Sweet Sal's Note:

    This recipe comes from my mother in law, who is from England. My husband ate this every Sunday growing up. It is important to have a meat thermometer handy so you don't have to cut into the chicken to see if it is done, otherwise you will end up with dry chicken. You can also add some par-boil potatoes the last 45 minutes to an hour for a complete meal. Enjoy!
