Great recipe that my partner said he would order in a restaurant! I looked at similarly titled recipes here and none had the ease of ingredients and preparation for such a high-quality dish. I did bake the chicken earlier and warmed in the dish as the recipe states. I subbed in half and half, and it worked perfect (with a lower fat/calorie count). I used it to thin the sauce as needed. Fantastic recipe -- try it. Read More

Made this exactly as written and couldn’t be more pleased! The hubby gobbled it and, even my picky 11 year old had seconds. This will definitely become a part of our regular rotation. Thank you for an absolutely superb and easy weeknight recipe. Read More
