    I love chicken and rice dishes, so it’s surprising to me that I don’t yet have a go-to southwestern-style one…I hope that’s about to change, because this looks fantastic! That’s so sweet of you to make a recipe from your husband’s childhood. For my boyfriend’s first birthday that we celebrated together, I got the recipe from his mom to make a traditional German fruit torte, and he loved it! It’s wonderful how food can evoke such fond memories.

    I just LOVE old recipes and sometimes they are the best ones to eat.

    My cast iron skillet broke. Yes, it’s possible. Long story… Each time I see recipes like this, I feel like running out and buying a new one. Maybe for Christmas. 🙂

    After many years of cooking and baking, I truly believe ANYTHING can break in the kitchen.

    I have been craving everything comfort lately, so this is hitting the nail right on the head for me. Love that it’s an old family recipe you found!

    I wonder if this could be finished off in the oven? I always have bad luck drying out chicken cooking it on the stovetop
