Butter Baked Chicken and Cream

This creamy butter baked chicken recipe is a simple and delicious dish for easy dinners with the family!

Both of my parents grew up in Kansas City, and Stephenson’s Restaurant was one of their favorites. I only ate there twice before it closed, but I still remember that it was so so good. This recipe is inspired by their chicken with butter and cream dish (one of the stars of the Stephenson’s cookbook).
