There are unlimited ways to cook chicken breast. I am sure that this one has been done before. However, last night I was looking at my chicken and thinking, I need to come up with something yummy to impress my husband who is not too fond of chicken. So I opened my freezer and there they were, the shrimp looking at me, saying take me, so I did. Then I opened the fridge and saw the sun dried tomatoes jar and my brain went…. OK, I got this!
