My siblings and I couldn't wait to sit down to supper when Mom was making this delicious chicken. The cornmeal in the coating gives each juicy golden piece a wonderful crunch.

I created this recipe over years of preparing meals for hunting camps out in the backcountry. Out there, I'd cook it in a Dutch oven over a fire. It satisfies even the biggest eaters, and it's easy to double or triple the recipe.
Each time Mesa, Arizona subscriber Margaret Pache prepares this full-flavored dish, she's reminded fondly of her mother. "Mom made it often for me and my seven brothers and sisters," Margaret explains. It was her favorite—ours, too."
Our family loves pizza, and this variation is one we enjoy often, the chicken is unexpected but delicious. On hectic days, I can make it in a snap using a prepared crust. Either way, it disappears in a hurry.
This is a favorite dish in our family. I came up with this dish myself because the traditional version takes forever to make. I just throw a few ingredients together, pop the dish in the oven and forget it.—Robin Stevens, Cadiz, Kentucky
My guests like this casserole even if they don't usually like all the ingredients in it! For instance, people who don't care for broccoli don't mind it in this dish. And I like the way it's so easy to make and serve when company comes. —Suzann Verdun, Lisle, Illinois
