The only bad thing about this recipe is I want to eat it at least once a week and I would get complaints about that. I used boneless/skinless breasts, but otherwise followed exactly, and this is AMAZING! I served brown rice on the side and spooned some of the sauce over top, and I couldn't be happier. Even my picky mother said it was good, which coming from her is high praise. Thank you!

Wow this is darn good tasting chicken, easy enough for a guy to throw together, the sauce has a good flavor and goes great with rice. Great recipe which means I'll be making it over again! TY Katia
