Saturday Chicken Recipe

This is a Saturday Chicken variation on a recipe from Peg Bracken's "I Hate to Cook Book" cookbook. It is just one of the everday easy-to-prepare dishes that Bracken includes in her book. You can't go wrong with this one. She adds some parsley garnish, I prefer nuts. Here's the way I've prepared it.
