If you need a dinner that comes together in 15-minutes or less, “Feed Me Fast” Chicken is the go-to move. I came up with this recipe one night when my kid’s were heading home from my parent’s house. I’m lucky in that my folks live 15-minutes away and my kids just love spending time with them 🙂
They had been in the pool all day and I knew when they got home they would be hungry and cranky and I’d better have something on the table when they burst through the door…and that’s how “Feed Me Fast” chicken was born!
You can watch my video tutorial below. Apologies for the audio on this video! Not sure what happened, but you could watch with the sound off, just to get the idea for the preparation 🙂
