      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.

      Love this my friend, I never knew about the (zip & steams) until seeing them at the store a while ago. And I never even thought about putting chicken in it. Very moist, very delicious and low in fat and calories. I used 3 chicken boneless, skinless tenderloins, and the only small change I made was use 1 tablespoon of fat-free Italian dressing in place of the water. Still used the garlic and the paprika, and added some dry Italian seasoning in there too. I used these cutlets on top of a spinach salad, and it was just delightful. Thank you for posting this, MsSally! Fall 2008
