This simple, flavorful dish highlights our blend of classic Italian seasonings (basil, sage, oregano, and more), which lend bold, earthy flavor to both our seared chicken and the creamy dressing spooned on top. A side of smooth mashed potatoes makes for a comforting, hearty accompaniment, while a vibrant duo of juicy tomatoes and tender zucchini glazed with sweet balsamic vinegar adds incredible richness.
