Notes

Expert tips:
  • Use "shortcut" products to save time or save a trip to the grocery. Frozen diced onions, frozen chopped spinach and jarred chopped garlic and pimentos work great!
  • Choose an oven proof skillet to save clean up.  This is a one pot meal.
  • No feta cheese? No problem, simply sprinkle your favorite cheese on top.
  • Chicken is fully cooked at 165° or when juices run clear (no pink areas).
