Chicken Dinner

Dolores’ Brokenhearted Chicken

broken hearted chicken

This is comfort food at it’s finest.  For us this was a new recipe that I followed exactly and after the family devoured it was agreed that the original recipe is perfection.  This was an easy meal for a Sunday and paired very well with mashed potatoes and corn.  If you have about an hour to spare, this dinner could be eaten any night of the week.

Butter, bacon, chicken, wine….what’s not to like?
