  3. Bring everything to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover saucepan & simmer for 45 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.

Chef’s Note: This recipe is even better the next day! It’s actually very easy to make & is a good 1 pot meal. It sticks to your ribs. I sometimes serve it with a fresh spring green salad with olive oil & balsamic vinegar.
