    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!

      Absolutely loved this recipe! So easy to make and so little ingredients, things I usually already have on hand. I love cooking in my cast iron skillets and this recipe will be made very often. My husband loved it! ?
