My Dad's nickname for me when I was little was Crazy Alice. I'm not sure why. My sister's nickname was Motormouth Mable. She talked a lot...a LOT!
My inspiration for this recipe is the popular Alice Springs Chicken from Outback restaurant. Every time I see that name I think of the nickname my Dad gave me. This is in NO WAY a low calorie or "diet" recipe but it is delicious and very filling! My family really enjoyed it and have deemed it a "keeper."
