I was very skeptical about this recipe. I followed it exactly, although I only had 2 chicken breasts. It came out delicious. The only thing I would change is the cooking time. It was a little dry, so I might check it at 50 minutes, but otherwise a great fast meal when you haven't taken anything out of the freezer. Thanks for sharing!

This was just too easy. I didn't have 'hunts' so I just used what I had on hand. I used a little more brown sugar and a little less chili powder. I am always 'skeered' to experiment. Hubbie was happy because the breast was really moist. and everyone else liked it as well. Would I fix this again?!? Yes. Thanks!!

let me review this now before i forget again and lose this again. This is a great recipe for when you had nothing planned/dethawed and just want something easy and tastey. I add some worcheschire on top of the chili powder last time i made it, and mixed it in with my bbq sauces this time because i was useing the end of a couple bottles, i just sprinkle an even coat of chili powder over the brown sugar to help combat the sweetness of this dish, this is a great recipe that i make often, varying amounts because its in my head, but i would have never have come up with the concept on my own, thanks tracijean
