Sour Cream & Herbs Chicken over Saffron Rice

Pat Morris


Yesterday, I decided to broil this in the oven since the weather wasn't good for grilling outside. This is a very tender chicken -marinated, and then broiled with sour cream, herbs & spices. I served it over Saffron Rice (with mushrooms, green onions and pimento peppers). I rounded off the meal with small green English peas and a salad; diet Cheerwine (a soft drink) and a slice of my Layered Red Velvet Cheesecake Pie. An enjoyable Sunday afternoon meal (or any day of the week).
