I love chicken and one night I started looking for a way to have something different and this is what i came up with. I live alone so it was just for myself, but it can be adjusted to feed a family of 4. I get two meals out of this recipe. You may want to use a 12 in. skillet or larger I have added 1/2 c. of instant rice to the mix and if you do that don't drain the tomatoes.
