Do you have to use thin cut chicken breast?

  • No, but I like to use them because they cook up more evenly and quicker than the larger chicken beast which tend to be thicker.
  • You can use the thicker, regular chicken breast, but I would recommend tenderizing/pounding them so they will cook more evenly.
  • Or if you cannot find thin sliced chicken breast you can carefully slice a regular chicken breast in half with a sharp knife.

  1. What do you normally serve as a side with this – have you ever tried putting in on linguine.  Making it tonight – looks yummy!

    • Hi Jill,

      You could definitely put it over pasta, that would be great! I usually serve it with a green salad and warm sough dough bread to soak up all the yummy sauce.
      Shannon 🙂 let me know how you like it!

  2. I always feel more comfortable cooking chicken in the oven. What would u recommend on time/temp if I were to bake this?

  3. This is delicious! Big hit with my family. I used green onions rather than onion powder. Also, I used chicken tenderloins rather working with breasts.

  4. This. looks. amazing!!!!!! I’m heading to the store to get everything to make this for dinner tonight.
