Ooh so Good Smothered Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Beachbunnymom

We eat lots and lots of chicken. I got sick of making the same chicken recipes so I created this. It is pretty healthy and is packed with flavor. Goes perfect on top of rice.

This is a hidden treasure! I found the recipe when I was participating in PAC Fall 07 (I wasn't the "mommy" though!) and I'm so glad I did! Both Gato and I say HIGH FIVE stars. Thanks so much Beachbunnymom! We'll be making this again and again! (Oh! We did 1 full teaspoon of cayenne cuz we like it HOT!)
