“This is a quick and easy dinner, very popular at our house. Sometimes I put it over rice, sometimes over egg noodles, sometimes over biscuits. You can change it by varying the vegetables you use, like turnips or green beans. And the neat thing is you can use whatever you have in the house at the time! Cook time includes time for chicken to parboil and vegetables to cook.”
