Caramelized Chicken, one of our all time favorite dish that my mom makes, which is also extremely easy to prepare. My mom is in town for the holidays and it has been a real treat for all of us at home. Bella & Jamie are having a ball spending quality time with their Granny. Like me, my mom loves to cook too. She is a great cook and I always enjoy learning her recipes as well as exploring new ones with her.
