This has been the favourite recipe of my family for over 40 years: my mother first cooked it when I was a child, and it became a favourite in my family too: notes on it: my recipe puts it into the oven ina casserole dish for half an hour after the stove cooking. It finishes it off, but careful not to leave too long or the chicken disintegrates!
