“An unbelievably delicious, quick, and simple recipe that proves you don't need 16 million ingredients to make chicken interesting. It's a true "30-minute meal", maybe even less if you hurry. Although it's absolutely nothing fancy, this recipe comes from the midwest, a place where people love food and know how it's supposed to be. Everyone I know who has ever tried this dish has loved it, and I hope you all do as well.”
