15 Delicious Chicken Recipes for Sunday Dinner

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by All opinions expressed are my own. 

My Sunday dinners in the past have included a roast beef or chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, veggies,  salads and pie  for dessert. In our family, we typically only had the traditional Sunday dinners on long weekends and holidays like Easter Sunday and Thanksgiving. John and I have friends who enjoy a Sunday dinner with friends and family each week. Our version is much smaller since we have no family around where we live. I miss getting together with family friends to share a delicious home-cooked meal.
