The Weekly Spread # 4 – Goopy Chicken

I received a lot of interest from last week’s menu plan, which included one of our family favorites, Goopy Chicken. One of my son’s gave it this name because it’s, well, goopy, and it’s much easier to say, “We are having goopy chicken tonight” than saying “We are having chicken with soup, celery and onion”.

After we ate this meal, I realized I forgot to take a photo for the blog. Thankfully there were leftovers.  This image is staged, but my husband happily gobbled it up. I’m not a food photographer, so this really isn’t the best picture. The dish, however, is right up there with my list of comfort food favorites.

If you give this a try, I would love to hear your thoughts!
