RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe is from Cooking Light. I made a few minor adjustments. Instead of Thyme, I used Basil. I added a few sliced mushrooms to the chicken when I cooked it. I also ended up cooking the veggies a bit longer in order to get them slightly browned. It is a very tasty dish. I hope you enjoy!
