I was born in 1936 to a family of eight. Much of our food came from our garden and the henhouse at the back of our city lot. Mother served fried chicken every Sunday, but sometimes she surprised us with this creation. No arguments then as to who got what piece of chicken! —Donald Laugherty, Connellsville, Pennsylvania

"Very good taste. Kinda difficult to keep the stuff inside the chicken. Kids even ate it!"

"This was very good, but I will be making a couple adjustments. The curry powder was tasty, but the amount overshadowed the cheese; and the amount of filling was enough to stuff at least 3 pieces of chicken. I couldn't squeeze it all into the two pieces that I had thawed!!"

"Very tasty and easy! I think the gravy would need browning sauce added in order for it to look like the picture."
