Top Review by Chocolatl

I used bone-in chicken breasts cut in half, so mine did take a bit longer to cook I followed the advice of another poster and added some garlic and thyme. This is beautiful, flavorful and easy--who could ask for more? Thanks for posting! Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8, Pick a Pepper Challenge.
