Cooking Up Memories: King Ranch Chicken

This recipe came from my sister-in-law's mom.  The shower where I got all of my recipes was held at her house and she is a wonderful hostess.  She gave me this recipe along with the recipes for the food she made for my shower, so I look forward to trying those too!

We are in our final few days in our apartment so my kitchen is pretty sparse right now (in fact I had to unpack a mixing bowl to make this recipe!).  So this is the last dinner I'll be making in our apartment.  I waited until the beginning of the week to make it in hopes that it'll get us through the rest of this week (along with a soup I made over the weekend).  So now the dishes are in the dishwasher and tonight my kitchen will be packed up for good!

David said he really liked this recipe.  I haven't been feeling well so I didn't actually eat any last night, but plan to try some later this week :)
