Delicious and so easy!! This recipe has been nominated by the family to be in our top 10. It's an easy weeknight meal, but good enough to serve for entertaining. This dish is meant to be served over just plain white long grain rice, but really any rice will do. I made a green salad and fried up some tostones to go along with it. So good! This recipe is from the cookbook "The One Armed Cook" ( a cookbook for young moms with small children). This is a great cookbook and I have no small children at home. I double the recipe for my family.
