This recipe is typical North style. Half fried chicken in fresh cream gravy. This was passed onto me by a one time neighbour (lol) They were a bunch of energetic college girls who made me feel young whenever I was with them. They were full of life with a heart of gold. O yes, each one of them is special to me. They were kind enough to add me also (oldie) in their whatsaap group, so one day Amal passed on this recipe to me.... and it is real yumm ..... real real yumm...... Thanks Amal.... this one is for keeps.
