  1. This sounds easy - and I'm always looking for new chicken recipes.

  2. I got inspired to make this after watching someone do a fancier version on the Food Network, I decided to pare it down and make it easier at home.

    The leftovers of this make amazing paninis.

    I love chicken and this might be my favorite recipe of all time - made this for Sunday dinner and it's gone - barely enough leftover for one sandwich and my youngest called dips on it. All I can say is wow!
