Total Cop Out or Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner?

easy chicken dinnerSo, this is more of an assembly method than a recipe. Brace yourself because there’s more posts were that came from. I’m much happier cooking with a method or formula than a rigid recipe. In fact if I post a recipe on this blog you can be assured that its darned good because I rarely can be bothered to look up a recipe.

Anyway, I saw a picture of something similar to this on pintrest and thus dinner was born. This is a go to for me when I am cooking ahead of schedule. It’s quick to put together while something else is cooking on the stove top. Then it can be popped into the oven while we’re eating dinner or it can be refrigerated to be baked then next day.
