Baked Bourbon Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 21mins
Recipe by Nose5775

This is rich-tasting but fairly simple to make. I got this recipe from the Houston Chronicle sometime in the early 1990s. It was submitted by a retired chef named Ken Olszewski in response to a reader request or a recipe challenge. I like to garnish this with parsley so I can sing "parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme" while I am cooking.

This was good, just not as wow as I expected (the smell while they cooked was fantastic). Used large skinless chicken breasts, maybe they should have been cut smaller? Or maybe I should have basted them?
