This baked chicken is so delicious and easy to make.  I love dishes where I can throw in the oven, set a timer, and forget about them.  When I make this recipe for my family, they love it.  I enjoy making it during the week, Why, because when I make a dish like this it requires my whole family to sit together, and during the week I know how hard it is to do that, but somehow when I do, we all manage to make it to the table.

 

Side dishes options:

 
• Mashed potatoes
• Vegetables – carrots and green beans are my favorite
• Steam rice
• Garden salad
 
 
This dish is also perfect for meal prep, it will give you five meals, and you’ll be set the entire week.
