    arroz241_11561377's Note:

    Here's another recipe from my Betty Crocker recipe file box that I got in the '70s. Some of the ingredients and techniques, on some of these old recipes seem a little antiquated today, but many can be updated for todays palate, and available ingredients. I'm writing this recipe exactly as written, but.you can adjust to personal taste. Also the original recipe says it serves 4, yet it calls for 6 legs with thighs attached? I'd say it serves 6.
