In August, 1990, I discovered this recipe in the San Francisco Chronicle. Trust me when I say it has been tried, tested, and much loved. Marion was an iconic Bay Area food writer, chef, cook, and she also put together the Fanny Farmer Cookbook. My edition of that cookbook (1984) is battered and worn, the spine is broken, pages fall out, and pages are marked with spills of food being prepared. So too is the recipe below...the newspaper clipping is battered and worn. Marion's recipe for this chicken was/is "Roast Chicken With Smothered Potatoes." I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
Family, friends and home are the treasures that bring me the most pleasure. Through my blog, I wish to share part of my life and heart with readers.
