Layered Vegetables with Chicken

I have had this recipe for years and evidently haven’t made it in a very long time, since my husband could not remember the last time I made this dish.  This is a recipe that I received from a co-worker and I have had since my time living in Northern Michigan.  What I remember from Northern Michigan are winters that are long and cold, lots of snow and sub-freezing temperatures (I remember wearing fleece on the 4th of July in Marquette). However, that is where I met my husband who was an Air Force pilot at the time, so we have very fond memories of Northern Michigan.  This recipe is a one-dish-wonder.  You layer the ingredients, cover and let the oven do the work.  When it is done, you have an entire meal.
