This dish was one of the staples in my family. When we were invited to Granny's for supper, we'd walk in and the familiar smell of Granny's chicken primed us for this great meal. Very easy to make and feeds many! Enjoy and thank you Gran :)

I made this without the potatoes because my DH bought a ton of chicken on sale and I had leftover potatoes I needed to use up. So I just put all the ingredients on the chicken (except the wine which goes in the pan). We are both glad that I made a big pan full because it was delicious and moist. Will make it again with the potatoes using extra bread crumbs and cheese on the chicken. A keeper!

Just o.k. Mine came out dry. I guess I should have added water/broth while baking but I wanted to put it in the oven and forget it. Also, I used broth rather than wine. I will probably not make this again. At least not without some major tweaking. But the idea behind this recipe seemed good.

I used breast fillet for this one, and I sprinkled the breadcrumbs and cheese over both chicken and potatoes. Ialso used edam instead of parmesan. Since I only have a toaster oven, I had to estimate the temperature and time. The chicken came out nice and moist, and both that and the potatoes were flavorful. What I love most about this recipe though is that I just toss everything into the top, shove in into the oven and take it out when it's done. Easy!
