This is a lazy-day dish reserved for when you really don't feel like cooking or shopping. Keep all the ingredients in the pantry. It's also a good dish to sneak leftover vegetables into. Use spinach, zucchini, all kinds of mushrooms, and green onions, and they all taste great. For more chicken dinners, see our complete collection of chicken recipes.
