Chicken in Potato Baskets Recipe
These petite pies with their hash brown crusts are so pretty that I like to serve them for special luncheons. Chock-full of meat and vegetables in a creamy sauce, they're a meal-in-one...and a great way to use up left-over chicken or turkey. —Helen Lamison Carnegie, Pennsylvania
