Skillet Baked Chicken and Tomatoes

Andy Anderson !


This is an extremely easy dish to put together, and serve. It’s cooked on the stovetop and then baked using the same pan.

I love this dish all year long, and as the weather begins to turn toward the cool side, I just add a bit more cayenne, and pepper.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
