Cynthia's notes for this recipe:
This is a wonderful chicken and vegetable dish that I grew up with in Texas. I love the way my mother cooks so I asked her for the recipe but of course she grew up not using measuring utensils so this recipe is my interpretation of her recipe. Also, I used three squash varieties just because. I believe it is healthy, apart from the salt and very filling. This is a great dish when partnered with rice, beans and tortilla's.

Before editing the recipe please try it as the recipe calls then you can decide from there. I hope you enjoy this.
