Cheddar Chicken

Elaine Bovender


A friend of mine sent me this recipe in a link on Facebook sometime back. I finally got around to making this recipe and it is wonderful! My husband especially enjoyed it so much, that I packaged what was left into TV dinners for him to enjoy at another time. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did.
