    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    This is soooooooo good! It is fork tender and great served with buttered rice or mashed potatoes. Add green beans or collard greens with some cornbread or rolls, and you have a real southern meal.

      So good and so fattening :) But who cares, sometimes you just have to splurge and splurge we did. We loved every bite too! We had along side mashed potatoes, coleslaw and angel biscuits to sop up the gravy. So good!

      This was very good. I added some extra spices also, as my husband and I do like things with a little tinge to them. I also used 2% milk for the gravy instead of water and it worked out good. I'm originally from Alabama and my Momma always used milk to make the gravy. Yum! Yum! This is certainly a keeper and makings for many more happy meals. Thanks!
