    I started making this dish, when I watched your video – it has been an alltime favourite ever since 🙂

    I’d give it more stars if I could! I made it for our Sunday dinner tonight and my husband told me it is a keeper so it will be part of our regular dinner plan from now on. The cheese got all brown and bubbly and the chicken was moist and tender. It looked like it took a lot of time to prepare, but it was so quick and easy to make. It was really delicious and the best part is that we have left-overs for another dinner this week.
