When I finally got this together it was pretty good eating. I picked this in the Alphabet Soup game. Had a real time finding ground chicken, but finally did. I'd never cooked it before and I'm sure that if I hadn't left it in the oven a wee bit too long it would have been more tender. The sauce, though, was great and I'm sure I'll make this again when the weather cools down.
