My son Devin is a real foodie and LOVES to be with me in the kitchen. He decided he was going to make an Italian style chicken. This is HIS recipe. The only thing I do is supervise and make sure he follows food safety and doesn't burn or cut himself. He is very excited about me posting it. He hopes you enjoy it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a fantastic chicken dinner recipe. The Italian chicken is full of flavor from all the fresh ingredients. Fresh herbs and veggies are what make this so yummy. We were a little concerned there may not be enough seasoning but were we pleasantly wrong. We tested it over pasta and with just a bit of fresh Parmesan, it was a delicious dinner.

How To Make my 10 year old's chicken

Test Kitchen Tips
Even in the Test Kitchen, we make mistakes. If you look closely at the photos, we added a bit of the fresh parsley in step 4, not step 6. We realized the mistake and added the rest with all the other herbs later. This recipe is very forgiving.
