Stegall's Heavenly Chicken

Katherine Jacobs


I received this recipe in college from a male politican who was running for a student government position. I didn't know much about politics then, but I thought he had to be one smart cookie to give a recipe to female voters. He definitely got my vote. I've kept this recipe for many years, and it is featured in my book. My husband loves it, and it is one of my main dishes to share with friends who need a comforting hand. ENJOY!
