I made this chicken dish for dinner this evening and my husband commented that it was the best chicken he has ever tasted and that he wants me to serve it as one of our regulars. So I immediately after finising dinner made notes as to the ingredients that were used in order to create this recipe I am happy to share. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as my husband and I did.
