I threw this recipe together and was so happy with it that I wanted to share! I used a package of a whole chicken that was sectioned into its parts. The flavors come together very well if you keep the skin on the chicken, but you could definitely prepare this with 4 six ounce boneless-skinless chicken breasts.
