    loof's Note:

    My mom was cleaning out one of her closets and came across several folders full of recipes that she had clipped from magazines and newpapers over the years. This came from a March 1992 edition of the Houston Chronicle. This chicken is great served over steamed rice.

      DH enjoyed this a lot, but this didn't wow me: it struck me as a "US Family Style" recipe that gave a nod to Mexican spices but was extremely mild. I had plenty of sauce, but perhaps that was due to the 28-oz can of Marzano plum tomatoes in tomato puree I used instead of tasteless hothouse tomatoes. I think this would be more appetizing with yellow rice. I liked how fast this came together. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

      I liked this, but no one else in my house did. I really do not know why. I doubled the recipe, so I cooked the chicken in 2 batches. I had plenty of liquid in mine (despite the review that Teresa S gave) but that might have been because my pan was more crowded. Because I expected less sauce, I made Microwave Risotto with this. It would have been better with plain rice, which I would serve next time (at least if I doubled the recipe again).

      This came out out really nice! We had some tomatoes to use up and this was a great way to do it. I ended up cooking the onions for about 10 mins and also added a little white wine as Chef Jayeff suggested, just for more liquid. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe.
