Here is a recipe for an insanely delicious chicken dinner that is easy to make.
This is what I look forward to coming home to bake after work.  It smells delicious and the meat just falls off the bones
and melts in your mouth.  This chicken can be served alone or with mashed potato and corn.

2-3 servings
