This recipe comes courtesy of The Manor House in Littleton, Colorado. The restored mansion not only has a unique setting for special events, the catering department also gives guests the option to replicate family recipes for their menus.
“We usually see this a lot with our weddings,” says Kelly Case, senior event planner at The Manor House, noting that this recipe came from a recent groom. “The family made this chicken for all of their birthday and holiday gatherings, so it meant a lot to them and they wanted to incorporate it into this celebration as well.”
The process involved some taste testing with the mother of the groom but Case notes that for others looking to add this into their program, no extra time is needed to accommodate the request. And it’s not just for weddings, she says. “We welcome our corporate clients to replicate their favorite recipes, too.”
