What a brilliant site. Your group sounds really interesting and I just wanted to share my recipe with you, its for kids but adults can't say no either ;) My kids favorite food is pizza, this recipe is away of getting all those pizza flavours with chicken which is a good source of protein. They really love it and I don't feel guilty that their eating pizza again. I included the link. I hope you like it, looking forward to pinching and sharing recipes with you all mama's italian chicken bake
