      Absolutely wonderful! Very, very flavorful and moist. Even with the changes I made, it is definitely a make again chicken recipe. The changes I made was to use thighs in place of breasts and there was no fresh oregano at the store, so I wound up using dried Italian seasoning instead (I can't believe I was even out of oregano at home!). Also, I did not marinate the chicken at all. So all this, and still 5+ star worthy. The tequila was a nice touch to the sauce also. A definite must try, thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
