Chicken Dressed in Turkey

July 30, 2013 by Kenmore

I love catering to the special requests given by my loved ones. A few years ago I was asked to make chicken instead of turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner. I decided to make it fun and have the chicken taste like a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Needless to say, it was a hit. I have been making this dish ever since for many different occasions and it is loved by all.
