This was a huge success here. I wanted to do it tonight for dinner and then I saw it had to be in the fridge 1-2 hours. I didn't do it. It was still great. I had large chicken breasts, so I cooked it longer (near 40 minutes). I used homemade roasted peppers. All is great in this recipe. Yummy! Thanks BakinBaby. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
