    Adapted from the Peachtree Bouquet cookbook, this is a favorite of the "homerun king" and former Atlanta Brave, Hank Aaron. I can see why! Enjoy!

      Another great recipe from Sharon123! I love the sauce on the chicken- very buttery and cheesy, without being loaded with calories. The broccoli is also a nice addition, as it makes the dish more of a complete meal. [Made and reviewed for PRMR]
