    French Tart's Note:

    This is a recipe I have been making for yonks now.....I first devised it about 18 years ago, when I was following Rosemary Connely's "Hip & Thigh Diet"!! It's a very easy low fat chicken dish, which can be pan fried or baked in the oven - I prefer the latter method, it's much easier! Serve it with a medley of gently steamed vegetables, rice or pasta. (NB: PLEASE note, one of the reviewers has stated that she cooked this in a crockpot!! I would NEVER suggest cooking this recipe in a crockpot, that's why it is NOT mentioned as a cooking method ANYWHERE in the recipe - only pan-fried or oven baked. Thanks! )

      This was an excellent dish! Easy, easy, easy! I used 2 medium sized chicken breasts and put them in a Pyrex baking dish for 30 minutes. I doubled everything except for the ginger. Thank you for a great, easy and delicious recipe! UPDATE: Made these yet again, and it's now a meal that we eat often. Healthy, light and delicious! I did not brown the chicken, just put it in the oven for 30 minutes, which is perfect. I did sprinkle some panko crumbs on the chicken before putting in the oven, just to give it a little crunch. I recommend putting the water at the bottom of the dish instead of mixing with the ingredients.

      My family love this recipe and request it in the summer. Not wanting to fire the oven up in the summer I created a grilling alternative. I make the sauce put the chicken and the sauce together in a plastic zip lock bag, then I fire up the grill. When the coals are ready I shake off as much of the sauce as I can and give the breasts nice seared grill marks. Then place the breasts in a cast iron skillet, salt and pepper them and dump the remaining sauce from the bag on top. Snuff out the coals and put the skillet on the grill grate to finish cooking the chicken, turning a few times. Excellent, tender with a nice smoke flavor. Great with veggie kaboobs put on the grill with the chicken! Finish the meal with a nice pasta or fruit salad! Thanks for a great recipe :)

      The ginger flavor was perfect, we loved this recipe! I decided to experiment and baked one and pan fried one. I much preferred the pan fried one, it had caramelization and just plain looked better, the oven baked one was pale and unappetizing looking, although it was very good. Thanks for sharing!
