Hip Recipe Tips:
1.) You can prepare this dish ahead of time! Just cover it in a sheet of plastic wrap, and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before baking.
2.) Pressed for time? Skip stove-top steaming and use this top-rated, BPA-free microwave veggie steamer.
3.) If you’re away from home for most of the day, use this easy slow cooker method for cooking the chicken: Arrange chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour water (or broth) over the chicken. Add a touch of salt. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
