Amazing chicken. I was concerned that it would be too sweet, but far from it! It is simply delicious and cooking the breasts at 300 degrees F makes them fall-apart tender. I did forget the thyme since it isn't specified in the directions but since I "thirded" :-) the recipe and made only two chicken breasts, I suspect that omitting one-third of a dash of thyme didn't have too much effect. Make this, folks!
