Best Chicken EVER


The hardest part of making dinner each and every night is coming up with ideas that;

  • Everyone will like it
  • Doesn’t take me half the day to make it
  • I don’t have to shop for weird stuff to make it

And most importantly

  • I actually enjoy making it and eating it too.


It’s funny how at some point in the day I have always been expected to stop doing whatever I am doing and think about making supper.  When the kids were little, that made sense as I was an at home mom and really I enjoyed being at home and it was part of what I did.

But now, I am a grandma.  I am cooking for usually only two people sometimes three, but more people than that, I have advanced notice.  Ok, ok, maybe I am just grumbling now, but my role has changed.  I am not spending my day chasing my children anymore although sometimes I am spending the day with my grandson, and that is not nearly as exhausting.  I am now writing, researching, hiking, going to the gym, reading, learning, so I am not in the kitchen as much.

So, when I found this recipe, I had my doubts, but that didn’t last long.  This is truly one of the easiest, yet best tasting chicken recipes with the least amount of time to invest, and I have all these ingredients in my kitchen.

Take a read and try it out.  It has become a favorite in our family.
