Golden Chicken and Noodles Recipe

This tender chicken, from Charlotte McDaniel of Anniston, Alabama, cooks up in a golden sauce that is nicely flavored with basil. "It's great for taking to a potluck supper," she advises, "especially if you work and don't have time to cook during the day."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 6 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 pounds)
