Smothered Chicken



Marinated chicken breasts topped with sautéed onions and melted cheese, what’s not to love?  Serve with mashed potatoes, corn and a dinner salad and you have yourself a winner, winner chicken dinner!

*By golly-it’s naturally gluten-free too {make sure to check cheese, seasoned salt and dressing marinade}.
