This recipe was given to me by a friend many years ago. Her favorite is bone-in chicken, while mine is boneless, skinless breast. Try it both ways and see which you prefer. My family, friends, relatives...well everyone I know tries to wrest an invitation to dinner when they know this chicken is on the menu. It smells wonderful while baking, which is why we have to shut all the doors and windows, or the neighbors will be on our doorstep for dinner!
