Pat's Do Ahead Party Chicken

"My husband lived on a street where a neighborhood chef would create dishes, then call the neighbors at all hours. They would stumble over in PJs and tast the latest creation. Then he would throw them all out and go to bed. He was famous for this chicken recipe. I found stuffed it in a cookbook, got the story, tried the dish, got the rave reviews, and am sharing because a relative said "FINALLY, a new Chicken recipe!" Don't be afraid to make this for the family dinner for a trial. Great served with steamed rice and roasted brocolli. If you make chafing pans of this, double the recipe here. You can wing the rest to accomodate any size crowd. The muenster holds up well, and if you are not a mushroom fan, just leave them out!"

I am a finding a good home that fits a buyer is my never ending matchmaking job! I have 6 children and 3 grandkids. I love to cook and entertain, I put special focus on fun presentations and improving and updating basic easy foods.I like surprise ingredients that amend a dish's flavors, great ways to lay out a buffet. When not selling real estate, we rehab homes, so I choose colors that capture the home and design rooms to fit the way people live and entertain today. It's all fun!....oh, and I make jam and jelly. lots of it.
