Being that we prefer to eat on the healthier side in this house, we tend to eat a lot of chicken. And when I say a lot of chicken… I mean a lot.

So I am always looking for ways to “spice” things up a bit to keep the basic chicken and vegetable meals from getting too boring. Pun was fully intended there. Get used to it – I’m cheesy.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is that you can use chicken breast, thighs, legs, or tenders. Just be sure to adjust the time when cooking. This recipe calls for thinly sliced chicken breast, so it will cook more quickly. Thicker cuts will take a bit longer. Make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

Another wonderful thing? This chicken does not need any marinading! I won’t lie – marinading never hurts anything in my honest opinion. But it’s nice to have recipes that you don’t need to put too much thought into them!

Doesn’t get much better than that, now does it??

Being that it is still wintertime here in Michigan – I prefer to stay cozied up inside where it’s dry and warm. It’s technically spring, but the winter weather doesn’t seem to want to leave! I believe it’s snowing as I type this. Blasphemy!

Alas, I will continue to grill my food indoors on my Lodge Cast Iron Grill Pan indoors until the weather makes some form of improvement!
