Made this tonite, used 1 casserole dish instead of 2 small ones. Cut 2 chicken breasts in half for 4 pieces. So easy and my husband loved it.

This recipe was ok at best. They forgot to add chicken breast in the ingredients. Also why wanted two baking pans. Was not impressed at all with this meal!!

Hi Heather. Chicken breasts are listed in the ingredients about half way down the list. We love making meals in these individual baking dishes because they can go right from the oven to the table (on trivets) for eating out of. It actually uses one less dish because we don't need a baking dish and two plates, just these two individual dishes. I'm sorry you were so disappointed though and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
