Broccoli-Stuffed Chicken

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"I WAS BORN in 1936 to a family of eight. Much of our food came from our garden and the henhouse at the back of our city lot. Mother served fried chicken every Sunday, but sometimes she surprised us with this creation. No arguments then as to who got what piece of chicken! -Donald Laugherty, Connellsville, Pennsylvania"
