Top Review by Lisa in Acworth

This was unbelievably simple but really yummy! This is a great weeknight dinner and both my hubby and kids loved it! Cooked the chicken for about 35 minutes and then broiled for about 4 minutes to get a little bit more crunch on the chicken breast. The chicken was very moist and juicy. We skipped the red chili pepper and only added a dash of chili powder b/c of the kids. Next time I might add a splash of balsamic vinegar as well to cut a bit of the sweetness. Delish!
