Recipe by Dreamgoddess

This is another recipe that was in a cookbooklet I received from chef pines506. This would be good served with slices of hot cornbread.

Good, easy recipe. I added garlic and cumin. My corn and limas were in 12 oz packages, so I just used that, and I used about half the chicken called for. I just threw in frozen breast parts and then cut them up with my spatula once they started to cook because it was just faster and easier that way. It made for very moist and tender chicken! Instead of the romas (since there's nothing resembling a real tomato around these days), I used a 28 oz can of whole stewed tomatoes. Because I had the juice from the tomatoes, I omitted the water. Served with a garnish of sharp cheddar and with whole wheat sourdough.
