Keeping it Safe

Cutting raw boneless chicken breasts into pieces is a slippery task. Make it safer and prevent the knife from slipping by cutting the chicken while it is partially frozen.

    I agree with the others, it needed some spicing up with onions and garlic. After baking it was a it dry, I would add milk or cream to the mixture. the recipe make a lot, cut down the ingredients for two people. It was good, I will make it again.

    I made this last night, and my family loved it!! it is a little bland though, so I spiced it up with some garlic, chopped onion, and parsley. I also poured some heavy cream into it before it went in the oven, for that extra creaminess.
