Pro tip: If you want to go vegetarian here no problem - just substitute your chicken for some meaty mushrooms. We also suggest cutting the awesomely rich cheesiness of this dish with a fresh garden salad on the side. Top romaine lettuce with cucumber, tomato, and a light vinegarette for a cold, crisp and delicious side.
