Russian Chicken Recipe

I’m sure this really isn’t a Russian dish, but was probably created with a Russian dish in mind. This is one of my favorite Chicken Recipes and it is so easy to make.

As with a lot of my Mom’s recipes, I am unsure of the origin of it. I do know it is one she found in the early 1980’s and it soon became a family favorite.

Did my Mom make it up? Did she get it from a friend? From the newspaper or magazine? I really don’t know. But it is a winner! Enjoy!

    I have this recipe also! I believe that it came from a Woman’s Day cookbook that I have from the early 80’s. I would love to adapt it to the Instant Pot!

      Thanks Laurie! That totally makes sense. Woman’s Day, my mom had that magazine subscription too!
