“This is a recipe that I found in one of those cookbook's that you buy at the checkout counter. I've made a few changes based on our tastes. The recipe as written calls for boneless skinless chicken breasts, but I usually use boneless skinless chicken thighs as prefer them over chicken breast. If you sub regular rice for the brown rice, you will need to adjust your cooking time.”
