Simply Delicious

I have been craving a jalapeño chicken kind of dish for a few, tonight I just whipped out the 'peños, chicken, added a few things here and there that would compliment each other and made my dish to suit my taste buds. (hopefully my husband's too)

I did not want to do anything very complicated...I am all about "doing it simple" here is what is for dinner at the Williams' household tonight.
