SO easy to make, the chicken was moist and tasty and a great recipe for making on evenings when you're really tired or it's just too hot to cook - or both! I used a Glad Bag Steam Lock bag and used white wine instead of the water but otherwise made these exactly to the recipe. Thank you for sharing a delicious and really useful recipe, MsSally. Made for Every Day is a Holiday.
