Third Blog-A-Versary! (APPLAUSE) Chicken, Cookies, and Food is Love Year

Brom ain't afraid of no bacon grease...
Okay, okay - don't be mad. I don't have a contest, or a prize, or a contest and a prize, I don't have pets, or mounts, or luck at the Black Market Auction House, or even a grand prize in the Brawler's Guild. I got nothin'. Heck, I don't even have anything new written. But I do have a few things to share, even if they are, point-of-fact, other people's. 

My dad recently shared his "famous chicken dish" recipe, and it's so good, so easy, I wanted to share it with you folks who may be getting a little sick of turkey or egg nog or sugar plums:
