Not Chicken Again!!!

We eat a lot of chicken in our family. It seems like it is the most affordable item these days and there are dozens of ways to prepare this very economical meat.  Still though I have found myself staring at a plate of chicken breasts wondering………what shall I do with these?  I thought I’d post some super easy 4 ingredient recipes for chicken  that I found in The four Ingredient Cook Book.  I hope you will enjoy them!  ~Anne
