This is one of my favorite chicken recipes. If you would like, make a side dish of dressing ( stuffing) to go with.
I used to make this dish in the restaurant and would serve it with mashed potatoes, yams, Brussels sprouts and dressing or sometimes over an herb flavored rice. It always was a big seller. People craved that " Thanksgiving" flavor Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
