Seriously the easiest and yummiest tasting ever!! I did add sliced ham in between the chicken and sauce 🙂

Yum, enjoyed by the whole family. Will now become regular in my house. It’s nice to find something that everyone eats and enjoys especially with fussy kids. I added sliced ham and a few Italian herbs. Kids thought it tasted like a pizza so I’ll take that as a win.

This meal was delicious and so so easy to make. It was a big hit with my family. Definately going to do it again. The left over sauce is in freezer for my spag bol i think.

Delicious! I added ham and left the lid off for the last hour, temp high to reduce the liquid. Also left the lid off to melt the cheese. Such a versatile recipe, simply change the sauce to change the flavour! Next time i am going to try romano sauce and add bacon & olives.

Wow delicious I did use the leggos pizza sauce and it did give a lot more flavour.
Next time I want to try the ham with it!

Wow this meal is just amazing !! I added a slice of ham to each thigh and then followed the recipe and served them with chips, veggies and garlic bread. All 5 family members were extremely pleased with the result and licked their plates clean. Definitely a new family favourite at our place, thanks for yet another brilliant recipe Paulene 🙂

Tried this tonight and it was scoffed down by everyone! I just used a tin of crushed tomatoes and added some Italian herbs and garlic and bacon. Really easy and will definitely make it again! 🙂

Super easy and yum. I added ham between the chicken and sauce. Even the picky eater was happy.
