This is something that I threw together while trying to work on my kitchen remodel. I needed something that took very little space and was quick and easy to prepare. This is what I came up with.
A light and tasty chicken dish, add a salad and dinner rolls and you have a meal everyone will be happy to come to the dinner table for.
