Since fall has arrived in upstate New York I have been going through my old Southern Living magazines looking for comfort foods to fix. In my October 2007 issue I ran across a recipe I made years ago but forgot all about. This time I made sure to copy it into my recipe book so I will have it at my fingertips from now on.
Snappy Smothered Chicken didn’t necessarily sound like an appealing recipe as I usually don’t smother my food even though I am from the South. But believe me this smothering is well worth a try. It’s the perfect recipe for a quick dinner that will satisfy most anyone. Using a rotisserie chicken and a few other ingredients makes this recipe quick and simple.
I chose to compliment this dish with roasted Brussels sprouts and a dry Chardonnay we recently bought from McGregor Vineyards here in the Finger Lakes. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did!
