A great country style chicken with its origins based in Mexico. Pan fried potatoes the perfect side for sopping up the pan sauce that comes from the chicken and tomatoes. This is a favorite in our household. We serve with shredded lettuce, jalapenos and fried potatoes. (The ingredients in country recipes tend to be rough chopped)
