Lucille’s Ball’s Chicken Sauté in Eating With the Stars

Eating With The Stars

It’s high time Stargayzing welcomed the great Lucille Ball to Eating With The Stars.  In addition to her many other accomplishments, one suspects that Lucy was one actress who actually knew where the kitchen was in her Beverly Hills home.  I found this old recipe for her chicken sauté (along with an actual picture of said dish) in an old magazine and it actually looks promising!
