Summer Time Chicken

cathy tate


I love summer and it's endless bounty of fresh vegetables. I love coming up with new ways to incorporate them into chicken dishes to make them more interesting. My husband, who really only likes plain dishes really loved this one. It is family tested, loved and approved!
