I am usually pretty tired when Friday rolls around and don't want to spend much time in the kitchen. This chicken dish is very easy, tasty and doesn't take long to put together.

I really thought this dish was just alright. I didn't change a thing.. I think that i should have let it cook longer so more of the liquid could cook out cause we had a lot of liquid left afterwards and unfortuantely didnt have bread to soak it up with.
