Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Bake

We only tested this recipe once because it came out great! We like any recipe that involves only one pan, and for this one we used a cast iron skillet. You will need to cook on the stovetop and then the oven so the cast iron worked perfectly. This recipe has lots of healthy fats so your brain will thank you, as will your stomach. Comment below after you’ve tried it and ENJOY!
