Great Grandmother Kennedy use to make this for us at least once a week. This was her small batch! We had a very large family... The Great Grandmother, The Grandmother, my parents, my siblings and myself, and there were usually about 12 cousins and friends hanging around!

Great Grandmother would make big batches of chicken up and we would eat it hot... and have cold chicken for lunches and picnics! Oh how I miss those great family picnics at the lake!
