It is so rare that I come across a recipe that actually pleases everyone in my family but this one is it, picky eaters and all eat this till their tummies about pop and then anxiously await leftovers the next day! Trust me you can never make too much of this meal. I have seriously contemplated making an entire 10 pound bag of chicken into this dish because I know my family would eat it till it is gone. It uses ingredients most of us probably already have on hand (and are super cheap even if you don’t have them in your pantry already) and it does take a little time to prepare but I usually cut up my chicken earlier in the day to cut down on prep time when dinner time rolls around.
I have served this dinner to my whole family for a Sunday dinner and I have served it to friends and everyone just absolutely loves it and I know your family will too. Soo please please give this a try for your dinner this week, I promise you it will make repeat appearances on your weekly menus!!
