Golfer's ChickenPat Small of Clear Spring doesn't play golf, but she does make Golfer's Chicken, a recipe given to her by a friend in Baltimore.

She cleans house a lot, she says with a laugh. She puts the chicken in the oven and forgets about it while she does her chores. The chicken also can be cooked at a higher temperature and will be ready in an hour.

If you like sweet and sour flavoring, you'll like Golfer's Chicken, Small says.

We thank her for preparing it for our photo.

Golfer's Chicken

  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 small bottle Russian dressing

Combine, brown for 15 minutes, and pour off all but 2 tablespoons oil.

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup chopped celery with leaves
