creamy dill chicken

Barbara Birban


i have made this chicken for many years and it is always devoured with lots of compliments. it is quick and simple with few ingredients. Great with mashed potatoes (cream is great gravy) and carrots, lots of fresh bread or buns to sop up the gravy. enjoy!!!Thanks mom.
