    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.

    This looks so yummy! She had some amazing recipes. I need to try this one.

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. I love family recipes like that, they’re always such crowd pleasers! Adding this to my weekly menu asap. Thanks for sharing Meagan!

  6. Yummm I love Santa Fe rice and isn’t everything just a lot better in a skillet??

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

  8. I think this recipe would go over awesomely at our table!
