Granny's Italian Chicken

America, North: African American

Hi my name is Jarice Jefferson, I am a 16 year old from Kenner,Louisiana. The recipe that I chose to do was Italian Chicken. The reason why I chose this dish was because, me and my grandma was experimenting on what we could do to some chicken wings. That's when we decided to add Italian dressing to it to see what it might taste like. When the chicken was done,we tasted it and thought it was delicious. That's when we decided to make this a family recipe called "Granny's Italian Chicken".
