Italian Tomato Herbed Chicken: Oh So Yummy
A friend of mine made this dish when I was invited over for dinner. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. There is nothing like walking into a house and inhaling the savory, aroma of tomato sauce with herbs cooking slowly on the stove or in a crock pot. This recipe will melt in your mouth. A simple green salad and warm bread will compliment this delectable dish. Bon Appetite!
