Even though he probably wouldn't mind eating pasta every day - I'm always on the lookout for healthy meals that are inexpensive and quick and easy for him to fix with minimal dishes. (Of course there are certain space and time constraints to the things that he can prepare in his apartment at school.) Who am I kidding? I want quick, easy, delicious meals to fix at home too.
I used to make this smothered chicken when my kids were little and somehow in the hustle and bustle of life, it got pushed to the back of my recipe box and I forgot all about it. I haven't made it in so long, I forgot how easy it was to fix and how much my family loved it. This meal is perfect for busy families AND for busy college students.
