This was so easy and absolutely delicious! Served with noodles because that was what was on hand but would recommend brown rice. Will definitely become a go-to recipe for me!

Made this chicken last night. It turned out pretty well...my fiance loved it! I put it over israeli couscous and served it with stir-fried broccoli.
