Introduction

Found this one years ago in a healthy magazine. 10 years later it is still one of our favorites and my college son now cooks it for him and his buddies. We take the leftovers and use it in a tortilla the next day for lunch with sour cream and cheese.

    This recipe is really good. Used white rice and chicken thighs and half the spices except for the garlic and daughter even raved. Daughters been begging me for healthier meals. This is the first time she actually liked what she was eating! - 4/22/10
