RECIPE BACKSTORY
I like this recipe because it only involves a few simple ingredients that you can always have on hand and you can put it together at the last minute with minimal prep. This recipe is from Martha Stewart and is so simple that I used to make it before I even had an oven using a hot pot and in the toaster oven! The chicken is really moist and juicy and very delicious..
