This recipe is one of my favorites! Anyone who knows me knows that I DO NOT have favorites. On average I try a new recipe for dinner at least 4 days of the week. It is uncommon for me to make something more than once a month.
But this chicken... It is just. So. Delicious.
The kids love it. The hubs loves it. I love it.
I make it at least once a month.
I've taken it for moms with new babies / a sick neighbor.
I've made it on busy weekdays and when company is coming.
It is fantastic, moist, wonderfully easy, and you will not be disappointed!
