Southern Smothered Chicken

2 – 2 1/2 lb. chicken, cut up or 4 chicken breasts
1 stick margarine
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Boiling water
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt & Pepper

Place chicken in baking pan 2″ deep after seasoning and dusting generously with flour. Do not let pieces touch. Pour lemon juice and sauce into a measuring cup and finish filling with hot water. Pour around chicken. Add hot water to come half way up but not to cover. Dot with butter and bake at 300 degrees 1 to 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally. This can be cooked ahead and reheated. It browns nicely, is crisp on outside but so tender on inside. Serves 4
