One Pan Chicken with Tomato Cheese Sauce

This dish is a favorite among both kids and adults. This recipe utilizes canned tomatoes, which is something that is always available in my pantry. You can use it on so many different kind of dishes, i.e. tomato sauce pasta, Indian curry, etc. On lazy days, I even serve the food in the pan as it is on the dining table!
