Great recipe for anyone who doesn’t have time to cook dinner. This takes about 30 minutes, just make the chicken is cooked through. The ingredients are also basic and probably already exist in your pantry. It’s a one skillet from stove top to table! Recipe adapted from Lidia’s Family Table by Lidia Bastianich.
