King Ranch Chicken

After I first got married I called my Mom to give me some easy recipes I could make for my new husband. If it were up to me I would’ve cooked spaghetti every night 🙂 King Ranch Chicken was one of the meals I remember my Mom making for us growing up. I’ve seen it called a few other things but here in Texas, it’s King Ranch Chicken!

King Ranch chicken takes a few ingredients to put together. It’s a great meal you can prep and save to cook or even freeze. It’s an even better meal for a family in need because of a new baby or illness. Thanks to Mom, it’s turned out to be one of my husband’s favorites!

      Thanks! I’m sure there are some ways you can make it healthier too! I always have it with a salad so at least there’s a veggie 🙂

    King Ranch Chicken is a Texas thing for sure!! My grandma made this all the time when I was younger.

    You’ve got to have some good, go-to recipes that are quick and easy– especially with kids. I don’t know what I would do without my Crock Pot.
