This recipe is not new to the blog, but it is one of my favorite quick and simple ways to prepare chicken.  Since we enjoy this meal often in our home, I felt it was deserving of an updated photo and slightly tweaked recipe, as well as being brought to the attention of those who haven’t been reading long.  The inspiration for this dish comes from one of our favorite restaurants in our hometown, Scholars Inn.  (In fact, we loved it so much we had our rehearsal dinner there!)

These days I am a far more adventurous eater than I used to be.  I doubt I would order this dish if I were seeing it on the menu for the first time.  You see, I’m generally of the mind that if I am eating in a restaurant, I should order something I’m unable or unlikely to make at home.  Making chicken at home?  I do that all the time, and so, I almost never order it in restaurants.  I’m very thankful that my formerly picky tastebuds gave me the opportunity to try this dish because it was an immediate favorite, and I ordered it nearly every time we dined there until one sad day, it was taken off the menu.  With some advice from the staff at the restaurant I have been able to recreate it at home with great results.  This goes splendidly with garlic rice pilaf or cous cous and a mixed green salad, and totally works for entertaining guests or just a regular weeknight dinner.
