This recipe is something my Great Grandmother, Grandmother, Mother, and Aunts always made and I make it too. I call it Pioneer Chicken because it feeds Pioneers! This is a favorite when I cook for a crowd. It is easy to scale up or down and you can use the pieces of the chicken you like. The ratio of a serving is a piece of chicken, half of a russet and half of a sweet.Add a salad and you have a fantastic meal. Hope you like this homey Southern Italian style chicken.
