Super easy and delicious. I threw in some extra veggies as well. My kids loved it too. Definitely a repeat.

We make this dish at least once a month and i look forward to it everytime! The flavors are amazing and it pairs well without any rice or even cauliflower rice if you’re looking for a low carb substitute. I’ve done it with chicken breasts and they come out moist and decadent just like the thighs.
