Smothered Chicken with Pierogies - Recipe

Growing up my mom always made our pierogies, she would take a day and make dozens of them.
We would eat them throughout the winter lightly cooked in butter and onions.
I some how did not inherit the pierogi making gene.
I tried to make them our first year we were married with my mom, I did not have the patience and my mom ended up finishing them. *blush*
Dh and I had them once or twice over the past twelve years (since the arrival of the boys) and earlier this week I had a taste for some.
With the boys interested in trying new foods (finally) this recipe fit the bill!
I used the mini frozen Mrs. P's pierogies for this receipe but you can use the regular sized ones.
Spencer really enjoyed the dinner, Nate was alright with it but we all agreed that ham would really, really be good.

Great to whip together and will fill you up!
