Today for dinner I came up with something really good and hubby loved it so that's a plus.

We really loved this way to serve a chicken breast. Everything is fresh and yummy. The chicken breast comes out of the foil pack so juicy. It's a little on the plain side but the guacamole on top is what adds tons of flavor. This is a delicious and healthy way to serve chicken. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
