You asked and I listened
.
I did a series of polls, asking what kind of recipes you would all like to see more of and the overwhelming response was quick and easy dinners
.
This has got to be one of my top 10 easy dinner options
.
It comes together in one pan, requires minimum attention and is delicious and filling
.
The chicken can be swapped out for really anything you prefer, I’ve seen a similar dish made using pieces of sausage
.
Give it a go and tell me if I hit the brief
.
Enjoy!
