Saucy Chicken & Shrimp

Saucy Chicken & Shrimp

November 4, 2022

On a plane ride a few years back, Lisa met Mike Garozzo, owner of the famous Garozzo's Ristorante eateries in Kansas City. When he realized he was sitting next to Hungry Girl, the restaurant owner shared his popular "Mike's Diet Chicken" recipe with Lisa. And we just about lost our minds when we tried it. A few at-home modifications later, and we're happy to present you with this way-tasty yet surprisingly simple dish "Saucy Chicken & Shrimp". Thanks, Mike!
