Chicken Spectacular

This is Nancy’s signature dish for company (other than vegetarians).  We use it as a main course or as a side course to a hearty meal.  My main goal is to get her to make it, collect rave reviews from the guests, but then I get to have it for left-over snacks for the next several days.  The dish is much better than the ingredients imply. This originally came for the Sloan Class of 1989 Cookbook.
