My grandmother sent me this community book from Thunderbay, it's pretty old, the dishes are amazing and very easy to fix. This was one of my grandmothers favourite dishes. I remember having this when we were little kids visiting her.

Great oven fried chicken with all the fixings!!! I made this using 4 chicken breasts. After reading the reviews, I made the dressing different, by first cooking the onions and I added sliced celery, in the 1/2 cup butter. I then added salt, pepper and sage to the bread cubes and added them into the pan with the veggies and to lighten up the dressing, I used some chicken broth as the binder and baked it in a separate dish. I followed the directions for the chicken and gravy as written. My whole family really enjoyed this for a wonderful dinner!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe BK!!! Made for Went to the Market Tag Game.

WINNER! Not much I can add - Andi, FT and the previous five star reviewers about said it all! The chicken so wonderfully tender and moist, the chicken and dressing delicious. Easy to make and has that old fashioned taste only those grandma dishes seem to have. Seems like comfort food but company worthy fare for sure. Can't beat those old fashioned recipes! Thank you for sharing - another Baby Kato recipe to my Family Favourites.

This is excellent chicken and was extraordinary for us on the farm. As FT commented, this was picked up faster then a butter to milk. I used a whole pack of chicken, bone in, and skin on. (Had a great $$ deal on this pack!) so I just did as suggested in the recipe, but browned in electric skillet until the chicken was almost done. Popped in the oven for the last 15 minutes, on top of the dressing and what came out was so delicious! Served with fresh spinach, and the gravy on the side. Just delicious, Baby Kato! You have a winner here! Thanks so much! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* March 2009.
