When I saw that this was another recipe from Inez, I had to try it (I love your recipes)! I wasn't disappointed. I cut 4 boneless, skinless breasts into thirds, then made the recipe that way. Only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5, was that it was salty (soy sauce). When I make it again, I'll cut the soy in half, or plan to use reduced sodium soy sauce instead. I made the gravy, but didn't need it - the chicken was so moist. We did have Texas Toast w/it to sop up some of the juice. Very yummy!
