Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazingly Simple Comfort Food Recipe .The "Marry Me" sauce is just right, and the Marry Me Chicken dish has the most amazing flavor combination of spices. It's definitely a "please marry me" sauce; it's that delicious! Served over rice with mashed potatoes on the side and bread to accompany it, it's the ultimate comfort dish that we all enjoy. I'll make this dish again.
