Well I assume it has been well over a year since I posted on here and since I am back on mat leave cookin up some delicious things in my kitchen which are simple and super easy to make I thought I’d start sharing again.
Today I am cooking up the second set of this delicious chicken dish I received from my mom and no swear words were uttered as I prepared this dish. Its fairly economical to prepare as one 500mL jar of jam & one 473 mL container of salad dressing is enough for 2 dinners, plus it uses chicken thigh which is cheaper than breast however more fatty. So if you want to use only white meat purchase instead a package of 6 breasts and the sauce should cover it (I have yet to try since chicken boobies are pretty $$ still) This recipe can serve 5 adults and one toddler with 3 thighs each & one for the toddler, 6 people if using 6 chicken breasts or just 4 people with 4 thighs each. Its also easy to reduce this to 2 servings or multiply for more so it will be good for pot lucks or serving for guests too.
