Judi's Notes: This recipe was modified by me by adding garlic, increasing alcohol to 3 tablespoons, and increasing the oven temperature to 300 degrees F. to make sure poultry is evenly cooked.

Original recipe called for an oven temperature of 275 degrees, and I felt it needed to be increased. This is a very tasty dish, enjoy! Shared and MM by Judi M. Phelps. jphelps@... or jphelps@...
