This is a super easy chicken recipe that tastes so good, and is easy on the budget. My Mother in law used to make this for my husband when he was little, and it is still one of his favorites. I sometimes cut the recipe in half, if it is just the two of us. The longer you let this cook the better it gets, but make sure not to cook all the liquid off. Enjoy
