This is how I make & serve chicken. The only thing I do, is stead of Cajun seasoning (I can't get it here in Greece) I add a bit of garlic & oregano or Taco seasoning. Depending on our mood-if we feel more like Mexican flavoring or Greek. My family's favorite summer dish. Easy, Healthy & quick to make.
