We love Fire Roasted Tomatoes so what better way to use them but with chicken, some herbs, wine and cheese! It took a few times making it to get measurements for the recipe as I am one of those that throws it in and says "yes, that looks like the right amount!" ha-ha
This can be made with chicken thighs or boneless skinless chicken breast. Just adjust your cooking time.
Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Chicken is a staple in my household, and I'm always looking for new ways to serve it. This is a great way to spice up your chicken! Adjust the pepper flakes to suit your taste buds. This is guaranteed to become a family favorite.
