This recipe was inspired by a dish I oftened ordered when I lived down in San Diego and was able to visit a restaurant called Uno's Chicago Bar and Grill. Super flavorful and simple to prepare, a chicken dish that can use almost any substitutes and still be just as delicious. It's usually served with a creamy pesto penne pasta which I find a heavenly pair! —JennT1981
