Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

im gonna try this with drums and baked sounds good!

this looks reat and I plan on tryign it...but wouldn't it make more sense to make the sauce in the same pan that you cooked the chicken in to retain any flavor from browning the chicken? And also to introduce the chicken back to the pan before thickening the sauce to embue the flavoes of the sauce into the chicken rather than just draping it across the top? Excited about it though looks tastey and healthy!!

it looks so good.

Sizzling Home Fries

The best home fries are still the ones made in diners, you know the places that are nicknamed "greasy spoons." There's just something special about the taste of potatoes slung around a sizzling hot grill and mixed with the flavors of eggs and bacon that can't be beat. Wait until you try these - they're a breakfast (or anytime) winner.
