We eat a lot of chicken. No, really, a LOT of chicken. It’s such a versatile and tasty protein source, that it graces our table 4-5 nights per week.
In an effort to keep our menu ever-changing, I came up with a new recipe the other night. It was so well received by my family that I thought I’d share it!
