Corn and Chicken Dinner Recipe

Publisher Photo
My interests are reading, gardening...and growing most of the ingredients I use in this dinner! There's something for every taste in this recipe. It would be great as a meal-in-one dish for a picnic or a reunion. My husband is a farmer, growing mostly grain. We have a daughter and a son, 14 and 13. All three of them became "fans" of this meal from the start!

very good - I used a whole chicken and increased the time by 30 minutes and it was incredible.

red potatoes in this sounds awesome. i would think no on the crock pot. it simmers foods on low. these items are fried and then steamed. crock pot does neither of these things. to get the delicious texture, thus flavor of all ingredients i would follow the recipe as stated. foil packs... the chicken obviously takes longer to cook thru than the vegys. i would grill the chicken and foil the vegys. Mmmmmm cant wait till company or a potluck :P

Been making this several years, but had forgotten about it for the past 2, so I looked it up on the net today and was so happy to find it (cuz I didn't think I'd have the title right). Just as good as I remember. Very healthy meal-in-one. I cut back on the butter quite a lot and it still tastes great. So easy to make, so tasty and family loves it.
