Nana’s Million Dollar Chicken

Posted on: March 4th, 2011 by Kay Swatkowski


This recipe is a family favorite for the Good family of Illinois.

When the kids and grandkids come  home for a visit, this meal is often requested and Nana is glad to oblige.

This recipe was contributed by my dear friend Nancy. We  have been friends for 7 years and it has been a delight to watch as each new grandchild has been welcomed into this loving  family.

Nancy and her husband, Tom,  have four beautiful grandchildren and often remark on what a blessing they are.

Next time you want to serve a family meal , you might want to try Nancy’s  delicious recipe:

Million Dollar Chicken

    Kay, I plan to give this a try. I have a picky eater in my home, who is hard to please with ‘new’ dishes, but I am always looking for mouth watering ways to fix chicken. I will let you know how mine turns out.

    I made this recipe today and believe it or not, my picky eater said he liked it!!! Even without my asking.
    I made 2 and will take the second one to my friend who is taking care of a teenage daughter, recovering from knee surgery.
