This is a super simple incredibly fragrant crunchy chicken. It was first seen in Ladies Home Journal in 1959. (That's a great track record!) It's been tweaked by using more garlic, more cheese, less butter, fresh parsley and chopped pecans, all of which are good. You can play with this little number all you want. It will still turn out amazingly delectable.Source: Unknown
