Grandma Annie's Chicken Recipe

Grandma Annie's Chicken Recipe

This is a dish to take to a sick friend or neighbor. It is my version of "chicken soup" handed down from my mother, Annie. It freezes well. Thaw completely before cooking. It can be served hot, as a dinner entree, or sliced when cooled and served as a luncheon dish. It's also great to take on picnics. Pair with Gallo® Family Vineyards Pinot Grigio.—Taste of Home Cooking School
