Chicken Spareribs (strange name) has become hubby's favorite, as well as, Jaxson's. My daughter likes anything chicken, so it's a shoo in for her too! Hubby gets so excited, he helps with making the potato salad*. I was a little camera happy today :) Enjoy the pictures and the recipe will follow. Hope you have had a wonderful Saturday!
