Chicken Alexander

I found this recipe years ago from one of Auntie Em's cookbooks but for some reason I didn't write down the name of this dish. 
I have made this several times already, usually during Christmas or family reunions and whenever I'm asked
what I'll be preparing for the potluck I would simply say
"the baked chicken with mixed veggies and mashed potatoes on top".
It was only a couple of days ago that I learned what this recipe is called!
When asked by Auntie Em what I'd be cooking this year I told her my usual answer and she said "Oh, you mean Chicken Alexander?"
Oh, so that's what it's called!
Thanks for telling me --- after 15 years!

Anyway, let me share you the recipe. Obviously, its been a family favorite for a long time and I'm hoping it would be yours too.

sorry about the sloppy photo!
I forgot to take a picture before everybody dug in
