My mom learned this in Home Ec class way back in the 1930-something. It's been passed down to all the children & grandchildren as a Family Treasure!
Don't bother with homemade pound cake for this recipe- the frozen kind works perfectly!
You will need a double boiler to make this sauce.
I had this at a dinner party, and it is sooooo delicious! Creamy chicken with just a bit of heat, served atop crunchy cornbread waffles. Comfort Food! If your chicken breasts are on the large side, 6 will work nicely. This can be made ahead, simply reheat the chicken mixture and warm the waffles!
I like this version because there's no mayo- just a light Dijon dressing that enhances the flavors. This is best when chilled overnight. Adjust sugar to taste, before dressing the salad.
Cooking time includes chilling.
