Alice Springs Chicken

When I'm looking for a recipe "to impress" my guests, this is my "go-to". If you want to tell your guests that you spent all day in the kitchen preparing this gourmet meal, they're apt to believe you.

Of course if you spend all afternoon with them drinking beer, you're not going to be able to sell that. Make sure they're not invited until just before dinner is served.

Or maybe confessing how little work is involved, will impress them even more. How could you possibly prepare such a succulent meal in such a short time unless you were a master chef?

Served with a side order of Scalloped Potatoes and corn niblets this meal is fit for both King AND Queen.
