Pollo Formaggio $5.20

Heres another dish I remember back from my waitressing days at a relatives Italian restaurant. When I started to write it out, I vaguely remember basil included in the chicken as well as red pepper, but since I didnt include it on our grocery list, it is not in this recipe, but it would certainly add color and even more flavor. I am still confident that this dish will be very tasty. We are serving it with pasta, but as usual anything can go. Roasted potatoes, sweet potatoes, or vegetables.
