Fantastic! Love this method...I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and they turned out extremely moist. I also added carrots and a little bit of chili flakes for a little extra kick. FYI - there's a typo on the recipe: it says "baked uncovered, then back uncovered"... I assumed it meant "covered, then covered"...& that's what I did, and the chicken turned out great. (Plus I used a meat thermometer.) Easy, tasty, and easily modifiable dish! :D
