  • The Best: Favorite chicken recipes

    The recipe for Susan’s Stuffed Chicken Breasts is from my sister-in-law, Susan Thurman of Glasgow. I’ve been making this for at least 35 or 40 years, and I just love it. It’s so simple and it always turns out right. I don’t ever use 4 ounces of dried beef or ham; I just omit that ingredient. I think the first time I made the dish I had forgotten to buy dried beef, and it was so good without it, that I never bothered using it.
