This recipe accomplishes the goal of making my family members feel special for whatever occasion. I love it when I get to cook something they really like, and this is one of those meals. Mashed potatoes and salad and/or green beans often complete the meal. Our family was all together at home for supper tonight for the first time this summer – a perfect reason to cook Cheese Nip Chicken! Joy made it for us tonight ~ delicious!
