French Dressed Chicken

Lauren Conforti


My husband came up with this quick & simple dish. He was helping me out with dinner in a week that I was overloaded with appts, work & school. Only 2 ingredients! It can't get any easier than that. ^_^

He put this in the oven the night before, and I heated it up the next day & served it with parsley potatoes & broccoli. It was really yummy!
