Love Love Love this!!!!! It makes your house smell incredible.

You can use fresh or dried herbs (use less dried herbs) I used dry because that is what I had on hand...
You can use boneless chicken breast or tenderloins as well.
Use the seasonings of your choice.
I serve this with cooked pasta but you can use cooked rice as well. I also serve this with warmed crusty bread to sop up the yummy juices... enjoy
