Chicken Verde Bake

My boyfriend, Stephen, loved this dish. The issue I have with it (other than the fact that I can't eat it) is that it really doesn't not look good in pictures. At least not with my minimal photography skills. Maybe that needs to be my New Year's resolution, work on improving my food photography skills.
