This dish warms up the house with yummy smells. For a leaner version, remove the chicken skin. I like to leave it on for more flavor. —nannydeb

Former restaurant manager (and waitress, bartender, etc). I love food: eating, trying new recipes, shopping for it, talking/emailing about it, etc. My foodie friend and pen pal got me interested in recipe contests and also turned me on to food52 and now I'm obsessed!
