One-Pot Chicken Dinner

This is a very simple recipe that I put together years ago with items I had on hand (because it was cold and I didn't want to get out and go to the store, lol). I was able to prep things and then put everything in the pot and simmer on low for @ an hour...no standing over the stove the whole time. A comfort food, for sure. I just got one of the new pressure cookers. I think I'll try this recipe in that and see how it comes out.
