Citrus Chicken

oh. my god. This stuff was soooo good. We -being my stepdad, my mom, and myself- had a pretty rough weekend because we found out exactly how grave my stepgrandfather's condition is. It's not good, and my stepdad is VERY sad, and I love him very much so I wanted to make him feel better by putting something warm in his tummy. On top of those of us in my house feeling gloomy, Jason has had a horrible week or two with feeling pressure from school and wanting to find another job, so I knew it was time to fill the tummies of the men in my life up and do my best to help them feel better... even if it's only for a few hours.

For dinner I made Citrus chicken with parslied jasmine rice, and for dessert I made apple dumplings (in the post to follow). I got the dinner recipe from the swanson webpage, and the dessert recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks! Her blog is located in the links section on the right-hand side of the page.

In true form, I forgot to take pictures of dinner before we gobbled it up. Honestly, I care more about giving everybody their food than taking tons of great pictures.
