Personal Notes:
No Texas cookbook would be complete without King Ranch Chicken...so here is mine. I'm not even sure who gave it to me but it has been a staple in the family for ever so long. Cooking abd de-boning the chicken can be a hassle so take some shortcuts. From Kim, take a bought rotisserie chicken and de-bone that. It is quicker and just as tasty. Enjoy!
