“As a single working mom with two kids, I look for recipes that are fast and simple,“ writes Candi VanMeveren from Lamberton, Minnesota. “My family loves this one and it gets me out of the kitchen fast.“ TIP: This recipe is just as delicious broiled, Candi adds. Place chicken on foil-lined pan (for easy cleanup) about 4 inches from heat for 12 minutes on each side.
