Posted on

This could quite possibly be the best thing thát I háve ever máde! We both took one bite ánd knew this wás our new fávorite meál. It wás inspired by á dish Chicken Legs hád when he wás out of town. He described the dish to me, ánd I thought it sounded like something I would like.

I decided to táke á shot át it ánd recreáte it át home. It wás unbelieváble! The chicken hád á fábulous flávor, ánd the Mexicán rice wás spot on! We will never háve to go out for Mexicán ágáin.
