Fancy Chicken

Dana is always looking out for great recipes to try. She spotted a chicken recipe on facebook that looked delicious. Upon further consideration we noticed that it utilized a prepackaged soup mix. We decided to break it down and come with our own take on this dish. We started with fresh herbs and went from there. I must say that this dish was freaking delicious!

  1. Hi Rex,
    I tried this recipe out on my husband this weekend because I was having a group over for lunch today and needed to make sure I could make something edible. I’m not the greatest cook, but your step by step pictures make everything look so easy. Well, it was, as your blog states, “freakin’ delicious!” Everyone was raving about how good it tasted and I can’t thank you enough! I always freak out about chicken and not cooking it long enough, but thanks to my Thermapen, I am confident nobody is leaving my house with salmonella. Haha I served this dish over penne pasta and there was plenty of juice in the casserole to coat it. It was great and I can’t thank you enough!
