Baked Chicken w/ light sauce

Total Time

Baked chicken with herbs (similar to my baked pork chops) I made these for a dinner party. Everyone raved about how moist the chicken was and what a great flavor it had! The soy and worcestershire sauce give it some salt, so I don't add any other. The tabasco doesn't make it spicy, just adds a nice background flavor.

We loved this chicken! Very flavorful and fun recipe. I sauteed the onion slices in the same skillet after browning the chicken, then tossed them on top of the chicken and covered with the sauce. Served with rice pilaf and roasted asparagus. Everyone loved it. Glad you mentioned to be liberal with the spices. This is a great dish.

Yummmmmmmy! I don't typically cook with onion much because my boygriend doesn't like it, but I decided to make this for myself tonight, and it was delicious. The chicken was tender and moist, and the onion sauce was great with the the rice pasta side. I actually coated the chicken on one side with the herbs before browning and they really held onto the full flavor. Thanks for posting such a wonderful, and easy recipe.
