This recipe came from Woman's Day Magazine in 1993 and won 1st prize in a Super Bowl contest. It is one of my family's favorites. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It seems a bit lengthy but it really comes together pretty quickly. I usually start my rice in the rice cooker before putting this together.
