Garlic Chicken

If you find yourself with little time to prepare dinner and very few ingredients, then this recipe is perfect for you. These chicken breasts can be prepared in under 10 minutes, put in the oven and voila, you’ve got dinner done in under 40 minutes. It doesn’t get much easier than that. We ate these with cheese tortellini in pesto and steamed broccoli and cauliflower on the side. Both of my guys gave this one two thumbs up!
