WOW...how easy was this. Instead of cooking it in a skillet, I just left it in my glass casserole dish that I had been marinating in, sealed it tightly with foil and baked in the oven. Moist and delicious. Even my DH (who has a SERIOUS aversion to chicken in ANY way) commented on how juicy and tasty it was. Definately a keeper and I making again tomorrow night...teehee! Thanks so much for posting!!!
