Started making as directed up to step 4 when I put into the oven to finish off (with lid on), as I needed stove top space for other things and as my 4 chicken breasts weighed in at just over a kilogram (2 pound) I allowed a little longer for cooking but they ended up a little on the dry side but then again I rarely get boneless chicken breast just right but the flavour of the sauce made up for that and were still very much enjoyed, thank you Gerry made for Billboard Recipe tag game.

Love this chicken! DH is not a fan of B/S chicken breast, but he said this was wonderful and to keep this recipe! The chicken was moist and tender. Thought the sweetness was perfectly balanced with the rest of the ingredients. Thanks Gerry for another excellent recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

I cooked this starting on the stove-top as directed, but had to leave the house for a bit so I put it in the oven to finish it off while I was away. The flavours in this chicken are very nice and my chicken turned out so moist!!! Thanks for sharing. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag game.
