    I like chicken parm.

  28. One chicken recipe I’ve been seeing a lot of variations for lately and have been wanting to try is pulled chicken. Most of the recipes involve the slow cooker, which I’m all in favor of.

    We eat a lot of chicken, because it’s easy on the budget and there are so many different ways to prepare it. Thanks for this new take on boneless chicken breasts; I’m thinking it will go over well here, especially with rice on the side for any extra sauce.
