I really need to title Wednesday's as “What I'm Cooking Wednesday's”. For my new friends. Hey! Weekly I share recipes that my family loves. These are recipes that my family tried and love. I typically share a recipe at least once a week. Plus, I try to try a new recipe weekly. This recipe is as delicious as it sounds. It was super easy to make, and I used the pans I purchased from
to make this meal happen. I love how this recipe did not have me in the chicken all day. I opted to not mince the garlic and have nice slices for the family. They loved it. Trust me, this recipe is drool worthy.
