TRY THIS DISH- TRY THIS DISH! Brian H- you weren't kidding when you said this dish is gorgeous. Reminds me of my parents cooking- tasty, fragrant, comforting. What REALLY won me though is the complete ease of preparation. Marinade is so easy to prepare. I put this dish together SO quickly the following night for dinner, and I just was amazed at the simplicity. Serving this at a party would be a pleasure- seems like lots of work for quite the opposite! Very versatile- can use in wraps if you wish for an exotic lunch. I used breasts, because that's what was defrosted, but I will try this with every type of chicken. We'll eat this A LOT!!!! :)
