Stir & Season "Saturday"
The recipe I am sharing with you today is one of my favorites. Honestly, I am a very picky eater and some of the things in this...I would go "ugh"(I am worse than my kids). But, all these ingredients together makes one of the best chicken dishes ever...for a family meal and even for a dinner with guests!
How I came about this recipe or I should say how my friend came about this recipe is quite FUNNY! My friend was at a dinner party at her HUSBAND'S BOSS (keep this in mind). They served this dish and my girlfriend loved it. So she asked the wife if she could have that recipe. The wife said it was a family recipe and would rather NOT give it out. Well, that didn't stop my friend b/c she saw it on the recipe stand behind some plates. So she took it in the bathroom and quickly wrote the recipe down and put the card back! So needless to say she served it to my family and WE loved it. But I didn't have to write the recipe down in the bathroom under locked doors..thank goodness!
So enjoy...don't let some of the ingredients scare you...believe me it is so good it may be worth jeopardizing a husbands career!
