This really is a fast meal! Great for a busy night. Used boneless skinless chicken thighs as we prefer those over breasts. The only thing that I would do different would be to use a little more sauce as it was a little dry, but I most definitely like the ease and quickness of this recipe. Made for 123 Hits.
