Review This Recipe
WONDERFUL MEAL FOR ENTERTAINING!
I made this meal twice, once when my mother and step father were coming over for dinner, and then when my soon to be inlaws came over for dinner. Both of them LOVED it and was very impressed. My fiance BEGGED me to make this dish becuase it was something different. He says "will you make the green chicken for dinner tonight" So much flavor, yum yum yum. I put tomatos and mushrooms on top and smother in parmesan and mozzerella. Very good on top of linguini! It gets a five for easy, yummy, and eye appeal. Its a MUST TRY!
