I am always looking for new ways to fix chicken because lately I've had a bit of chicken aversion. All three times I was pregnant, I had a chicken aversion and sometimes it comes back and rears its ugly head even though I'm not pregnant. I saw the video featuring this hasselback chicken on Buzzfeed Food and knew I had to try it out. Their directions were for one serving, so I modified it to fit my needs and left it open-ended down below. I find that I didn't put a teaspoon of sauce in each slit and I definitely think the mozzarella slices was a little too vague.

So with the modified recipe, I ended up with a fairly easy chicken dinner. I loved the addition of all the pizza fixings plus the cheddar cheese on top. It tastes like a pizza and that was exactly what I needed that particular day!

Another one of my recent favorite chicken recipes is this Lemon Sage Chicken. These Zucchini Pizza Bites from Damn Delicious would be a great appetizer. I just love the whole idea of adding pizza toppings to not pizza. :)
