Very good recipe. Little bit of work, but worth the effort. Got recipe from a local newspaper in West Texas. There is a "King Ranch" in Texas. I am sure that anyone who tries this recipe will really enjoy it.My family likes only the breast of the chicken. Good deal, less to de-bone. Recipe is very easy to double, or more. I always, at least doubled it.
