Very flavorful. I used boneless breasts and reduced cooking time. I let them cool and sliced them thin for sandwiches. Used fresh oregano from garden, just before the freeze hit it.

Very good and easy! I used boneless chicken but made according to the directions. Served with salad and fruit. Thanks for sharing!

Easy peasy and full of flavors that I loved. I cut the recipe down for two. I had Sauteed Zucchini and Onions, and whipped cauliflower potatoes for the sides. Very good TeresaS and healthy too, which is always a plus for me! Linda
