History of king ranch chicken (or Texas ranch chicken)
This recipe dates back to the early 40s and 50s. While there is no definitive story for where this came from, rumors say it began on King Ranch in Texas(hence the name), the largest ranch in the United States.
Most people assume that’s where the recipe originated, but nobody knows for sure who invented it.
Fun fact: there is actually no ranch in the recipe, but the ranch refers to “where it all began.”
