Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe had to be included because it makes a historic moment in Bob's life. Bob was well-know not to eat chicken - or anything with feathers --until he ate the results of this recipe. Bill and Bertha Toole have long been friends of Jim's parents, James and Flo Bennett. We were guests of Frann and Jim at Isle of Palms one year when James and Flo were there, and Bill and Bertha joined us. Bill graciously prepared a gourmet meal, and this chicken was the star of the show. It marked the first time Bob had ever eaten - and enjoyed - chicken. Actually, it became one of his favorite dishes, and we had it often. Incidentally, we celebrated Bill's and Bob's birthdays that evening. They were both born on August 5, 1926.
