If you're having people round and don't want to spend the whole day in the kitchen, this delicious entree actually benefits by being prepared the day before serving.

Delicious! So glad I tagged this to use up some mango chutney I had in the fridge - wonderful served with rice and peas for Sunday supper. I was able to reduce the amount of serving very easily - just using six chicken breasts, however I misread the ingredient list and used chicken breast halves with ribs and skin - just increased the cooking time to one hour and skipped step 3 - but dotted the chicken with butter instead and turned the chicken halfway through cooking. Thanks for sharing this delicious chicken recipe which we will be having again!
