Im going to have to try this one again... it was almost dont when i heard a terrible crashing sound in the oven, MY PYREX PAN BLEW UP!! YIKES! I was so excited about this too :( will get another pan soon and try again.
Yum! I used a really large chicken breast that was large even halved, lol. This was very simple and very tasty. The chicken was perfect - so moist and tender. All of the ingredients complemented each other. Thanks Susan for another great recipe. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
