Everytime I think of this dish it reminds me of my newly wedding times... AG always used to bore me on the phone (before our marriage) how much he loves chicken chili. I had decided that soon after my marriage I will cook this dish for him and impress him...
So one day I was all by myself and decided that I should cook the full blown dinner and call over my sistern in law (AG's sister) and her husband, including my brother in law (AG's older brother) and his wife (just so you guys know... my in-laws were out of country at that time)... So I called in everyone and told them to come over for dinner that day as I making something special!!! Everyone was excited and so was I, because I was about to impress every single one of my in-laws... I went ahead and started making this dish...

But like I said before, I ended up making a fool out of myself infront of my in-laws and you know how it is the first impression is the last - so now everytime I say I know how to make something, I don't forget to ask as to how they make it... :)
