Ooh I get to be first!! Excellent recipe! The only change I made was to turn the heat up to hurry dinner along. ;) The chicken was so tender & cooked through perfectly. Definitely the way to do it! I think pork chops would do well using this method, too. The flavor of garlic & crushed red pepper was delicious with neither being overwhelming. This was SO easy.
