Recipe by Gingernut

Another recipe from Leanne Ely's Menu Mailer (savingdinner.com). This was very easy, and my husband loved it. I found it a little plain but he has simpler taste than I do.

Made this without the red pepper. Seasoned the chicken breasts with garlic salt and black pepper before cooking. This was really yummy! No leftovers available!
