This is a perfect meal for those nights where time is of the essence. Team this up with some mashed potatoes and veggies and you're set!

If you'd rather not use milk/dairy, you can make an overnight 'brine' using water, lemon juice, salt and dijon and soak all of the chicken the night before. This will result is really juicy and flavorful.
