I got this recipe from a recipe card I found in the mail. This is a very easy dish to make in one skillet. Tastes great! A hugh hit with the family.

This was really really good! I didn't have chicken broth so I added vegetable broth instead, and it was really good and oh so simple to cook too! It was just what I needed for today. Thank you!
