This was really tasty. I ended up marinating the chicken overnight and boy what a good flavor the chicken has. Also I lightened up the recipe by using 1/4 cup of oil versus 1 cup and it came out great. If there are any leftovers, I will shread the chicken and use in a fresh salad with a honey dressing. This was very simple to prepare also. YUM!!
Yummy! It's worth the time and effort for this dish. This has become a new family favorite.
We marinated the chicken overnight. The flavor was good, but the "breading" of flour got soggy when we baked it (after browning in oil). Next time, I might skip the flour. Also, we didn't flatten the chicken, and it turned out juicy and tender. If I come up with any improvements next time, I'll comment again!
