This is a chicken recipe that I made up and is a favorite in my house. It's great because you can cook it using your favorite parts of the chicken or just a whole chicken cut up. It's a special recipe made simple. And you don't have to add flour to thicken. Oh the smell along with the smell of jasmine rice will have everyone anticipating dinner tonight. Enjoy!
