Delicious and easy. I used an oven-proof skillet to brown the chicken, and then left the chicken in the skillet and proceeded from there, rather than dirtying another dish. Worked great..

Very good and easy too! Made as directed, though I used a lime instead of a lemon when cooking the chicken. Thanks for sharing!
