Specialty Chicken

Back in the day, you used to get recipe cards with your bank statements!  At least at the little bank we used in our town of Crestview, Florida.  First Bank of Crestview still sends them out to this day!  Most of us get our statements online to save a tree, I guess, but lucky for me, my mom-in-law gets them in the mail and still saves the recipes for me!  This recipe is from one of these old timey cards.

Now, I’m going to give it to you like it was written.  But.  I am making a couple of changes next time I make it.  My people loved it just this way, but I like my chicken a little more tender.  So, next time I’ll either sear it in a pan first or just bake it a bit longer, maybe an hour and half.  I’m crazy like that.
