We love a good multi-purpose dish and this one is definitely a keeper. Whether you want to serve this on its own, or accompanied by rice or noodles, the finished product here is a flavorful entree with a sauce that does great things – keeping the chicken juicy and tender, for one – and that the whole family will love…plus, it’s super easy to put together! We can’t think of anyone who likes to come home after a long day and then slave away over an elaborate dinner and thanks to this dish, now you don’t have to!
