Wedding Chicken

My favorite and very easy chicken recipe. I don’t know what its original name used to be, or if it even had one. Its been known as wedding chicken all my life! My grandma once made this dish for a wedding, totaling over 100 baking dishes…so ever since it’s been known as ‘Wedding Chicken’. 

Lets get started!

Seasoned chicken

Don’t skimp on the butter now!


Add the wine, but be sure to save a glass (or two) for you.

Time to bake

The chicken is seasoned and ready for the oven. Oh, and your house will smell wonderful once it starts baking!

The smell makes your mouth water

Remove after the first hour of baking, marry the potatoes with chicken. Halfway done.

Bake one more hour.


Remove from the oven and enjoy!
