“A great weekend recipe. But be prepared, they go fast. This is one of those "pantry" dishes. I began making something before I checked my pantry for the ingredients. Hence, "pantry dish". I don't know why, but those are the dishes that seem to be great. This is no exception. It is light but very filling.”

De-bone and remove skin. Chunk up and return to the skillet to allow the juices to penetrate the meat, approx 30 - 45 minutes on low, or until desired consistency.
