Butter Baked Chicken

Cassie *


I was given this recipe years ago from a friend..she swore by it, so I couldn't wait to try it. It was everything she said..flavorful, tender..just plain delicious..

I like it because it's baked, never dries out, and does not have a thick, heavy crust...if you like it crunchier..just bake a bit longer..
