WHEN I was a girl, I helped my father prepare Sunday dinner. He sparked my interest in cooking, and we often made this dish together. Papa allowed me to do all the chopping. When I did so, he'd tell me to whistle. Why? Because he knew if I whistled, I wouldn't be eating what I chopped! -Harriet Cremeen, Hensley, Arkansas

"The prep work is well worth the wonderful taste of this chicken! I made this once for my husband when we were dating, and he remembers when I made it! What a great meal for company too."
