  1. I love cooking with pre-done foods. This looks good and doable for a weeknight meal.

  2. These look delicious. I love when you can get back up quick meals that are “conscientious”. That can be so hard to find.

  3. What a great idea. I love making a pre cooked meal more like a home cooked meal. That will have to change! Thanks for lining to the In and Out of the Kitchen party.

  4. 5 stars
    Yum! We loved this simple recipe! I made the chicken for my grandkids who don’t do nuts. So we put the gravy on the side for dipping. What a hit! The soy added a real umami richness to the gravy. This recipe is a keeper!

    1. Thanks so much Glenda, that just makes my day! It’s always nice when we can find a winner that the kids / grandkids will eat!

  5. 5 stars
