This is so easy and delicious, I have made it many times over the years.
Recipe came from a woman at the First Congregational Church in NH

So easy I am sure many of you have made it as well.
In this picture you can see I just made two breast for my husband and myself. I have cut up a whole chicken and baked the pieces.
