    CajunYat's Note:

    This recipe is so easy - and so good! One of my favorite dishes that my mother-in-law has been making for years. Perfect when accompanied with rice. Preparing in a good "seasoned" cast iron skillet is a must for the flavor to come out right. I prefer using chicken breasts with bones, but my husband likes boneless - either way it comes out great!
