This came from Womans Day magazine (Mar '05). Appears to be an easy weeknight meal, or you could even fancy it up for guests.

This had a wonderful aroma when it was cooking and tasted just as good! And it was such an easy dinner. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and did not coat them with flour because of a whet allergy. I also did not include the mozarella cheese and I didn't haven't any - thought I did, but didn't. In any case, this was great and I will most definitely make it again. Thanks. Knitaholic for a wonderfully easy recipe!
