Simple Meal Deal: Buttered Chicken With Mashed Potatoes


I have a confession to make:  I tried out a new recipe yesterday in Mrs. Potts to post for you, and it completely bombed at our house.  (Each night after we eat dinner, I look at my husband and ever-so-sweetly ask “Umm… is this one good enough to share on PPP?”)  It doesn't happen very often, but last night he let me know that our meal did not need to make it over here, so I found a few recipes that I posted way back in 2010 that we  absolutely loved, and decided to share them with you again. (WHEW!)

This was probably one of our absolute favorite chicken recipes from a website called Full Bellies Happy Kids.  While she is no longer posting, you can find some absolutely delicious meals over on her site, and I definitely recommend you taking a look around while you're there!  Here's the recipe (yummmmm . . . )
