Olive Mozzarella Chicken Bake

This Olive Mozzarella Chicken Bake is a brilliant recipe that really elevates everyday ingredients. It is so flavorful; my whole family loves it.

 

We also loved the smell of it long before we even took a bite! Oh so yummy!

I have even made this using skin-on chicken thighs. It’s still wonderful, just make the same as directed only bake a bit longer. You will love this!

I served it over angel hair pasta with garlic toast on the side. I can’t wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. It is so tasty!
