This is an old family recipe I pulled out, dusted off and updated. I had planned to bake some chicken until I realized the bread would not be done in time and I only had one oven. So stove top it is! (Didn't feel like getting out the rotisserie). I serve this with rice and "cauliflower rice" to sop up the yummy juices. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.(dang! We gobbled it up before I thought to get a picture, sigh).
