With six children—16 to 6—and two boarders, it seems I'm always cooking for a crowd. (My husband says that we must have a revolving door!) So almost every recipe I use is doubled or tripled. This one is an updated version of the Sunday dinner my mother would have prepared—and the latest favorite with my family. You can easily get it ready Sunday morning, slip it in the oven, set the time and let it cook while you're away at church.

"So delicious, was a hit. Tender and very flavorful . Wouldn't change a thing so easy to put together. I served it over egg noodles and peas on the side. Will be making this again."

"Also an all time favourite of mine. I use chicken breasts and serve with mashed potatoes. It is a very easy weekday meal that uses ingredients I always have on hand."

"Lots of the readers work full time and appreciate any time saving steps in recipes. This is not a gourmet recipe site but a home cooked meals site. Our moms used soups to flavor meals. As my mother said if you don't have anything nice to say dont say anything at all!

My family really enjoy the taste and I appreciate getting to eat something that tastes great before 9 PM!!!"

"I accidentally forgot to put the sour cream in it and everyone still loved it. in fact they said the next time i make it not to put the sour cream in cause it might mess with the taste they like! also i didnt use egg noodles...i made rice and green beans instead. tasted great!"
