The secret is to let the chicken sit in the marinade overnight. Slice the meat as thin as you can for the right effect.

The chicken was so juicy and delicious. I added more onion powder by mistake, but it was a good mistake. Just excellent

These sandwiches were very tasty and a nice change from most of the mayo-based chicken salads one usually finds. The chicken is very tender and not at all dry. I made these for a hiking lunch with added caramelized onions under the chicken for an extra flavor zap. They really hit the spot and were a hit with both me and my hiking partner. I'll make this one again. Thanks!

I've made this in my crockpot twice in the last week using 2 bone-in chicken breasts, pouring the marinade over top and cooking it on low for 8 hours. Delicious! The first time I finely chopped the meat and mixed it with avocado, mayo, green onion, etc. to make chicken salad sandwiches. The second time I served the chicken breasts for dinner along with a veggie casserole. It's great because even though I cooked the chicken in the crockpot it came out tasting like rotisserie or roasted chicken with a very nice taste and very tender.
