Country French Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sondra Beth

Adapted from Rachael Ray - 30 minute meals - A combination of boneless skinless tenderloins or breasts and thighs well lend to a more rustic, "cooked all day" taste. A very comforting meal on a cold day.

I usually stick to using chicken breasts but am glad I decided to include the thighs ~ A nice change of pace for us! A very tasty chicken dish that I served with brown rice! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
