No idea when or where I picked up this recipe, but I've had it around for over 30 years! It's a quick & easy-to-make chicken dish! Preparation & cooking times do not include cooking the rice.

I really liked this recipe and it was very easy. I also changed it up a bit, especially since there were so many comments about the sweetness. I put in about 1Tbl of ketchup, a whole can of cranberry sauce, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and 2 TBL of stone ground mustard. I also let it simmer about 30 mins. It was really good. Next time I will add some cracked pepper and some fresh cranberries too. Yummy!
