Mealtime Mama: Chicken Eden Isle

Looking for a go-to dinner that you could make in your sleep? Here’s a good one Gwen calls Chicken Eden Isle.

“I’ve made this so many times that my husband now knows exactly what we’re having any time guests are coming for dinner,” Gwen said. “It’s nearly goof-proof, and you can prepare it ahead of time and then put it in the oven a few hours before dinner.”

Gwen says it makes a rich gravy that’s great over rice. “It’s not low-fat but it’s so good you won’t care,” she added.
