This was quite good except for the crust; the recipe calls for lining the crust with sliced tomatoes, but that made it rather soggy. Otherwise the filling was fine and we enjoyed it.

Several of my cookbooks have a recipe for a baking mix which can used to make pancakes, waffles, muffins, biscuits, etc. in a jiffy. Quick Mix is one of these. Of course, a well-prepared cook would have made the mix a week or more ago and just need to reach into the fridge for it. Bulk food sections often have similar commercial mixes. But if you would like to make your own, here is the recipe. The soy flour, instant dry milk and wheat germ make this a protein-packed mix.
I found the plain basic muffins rather tasteless and regretted that I had not tried one of the optional additions.

Yield: 4-6 servings
Time needed: 3-4 hours cooking time depending on size of chicken + cooling time. Best to cook a day ahead of serving. I allowed 1/2 hour per pound and that worked well.
I was not at all impressed with this dish. The chicken itself was very tender, and if the point was to make it especially for sandwiches or salads, it would do fine. But serving it with a very plain, unseasoned cream sauce made for a virtually tasteless meal. Perhaps good for a person needing a very bland diet for some reason.
The name “Hay” refers to Dr. William Howard Hayes, a Pennsylvania doctor of the late 19th and early 20th century who developed and promoted a diet that came to be known as the Hay System and had many devotees among the foodies of the day.
