I've made this many, many times. Each time I take leftovers to work, I get multiple requests for the recipe just because it smells so good! You will LOVE this. The chicken is tender and tasty! I had some leftover in the fridge last night so I made chicken/cheese quesadillas. They were fantastic too! You could do many different things with this easy chicken, but I like it best with the rice/beans in tortillas. No additional toppings are needed!! Enjoy!
