Okay, I know I should of tried a shorter name for this one, but I just had to list everything in this recipe, lol. I came up with this when I was trying to use up a lot of what was in the refrigerator before we left for our summer vacation. I was quite pleased with the end result. The cook time may vary, depending on the size of the chicken breast.
