      Directions

      Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

      Mix black, white, red, and lemon pepper together in a pie dish. Rinse chicken and roll while still moist in pepper mixture to coat both sides of breast. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat and then add chicken, onions, and garlic. Brown the chicken on both sides.

      Add vodka and let cook until chicken is cooked through, approximately 8 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet, place on a lined pan, and keep warm in preheated oven. Add tomatoes, olives, Worcestershire, and oregano to the sauce and mix ingredients well with a wooden spoon. Let simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet and cook until the tomatoes break down and make a sauce, about 15 minutes.

      Place the cut potatoes in a large stockpot, cover with cold water, and add some salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer until tender when pierced with a fork, approximately 30 minutes.

      Drain well in a colander; place into a bowl for mashing. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher and add sour cream, cream cheese, milk, chives, and garlic; mix well. Serve warm.
