This was my mother's favorite recipe for Sunday—hence the name. It makes an excellent recipe for Sunday dinner, because it can be prepared ahead of time and left to bake while you attend church. The leftovers also freeze well. —Don Harksen, Dothan, Alabama

"2 hours at 350? seems like an awfully long time to bake chicken. For those of you who have made this did you bake it the full 2 hours? This recipe sounds very good and I'd love to try it but I'm unsure about the baking time. Thanks in advance!"

"OMG! This is one of the first recipes I ever collected! I got it from a college roommate, who had recently gotten married. It was 1977. She invited me and my soon-to-be-fianc? over for dinner. We both loved the recipe so she wrote it on an index card and gave it to me. I still have that index card."

"So easy to make, and it tasted great. Pure comfort food! I used a large package of drumsticks so it was ready in about an hour and a half."
