Wonderfully garlicky, moist and deliciously flavoursome! I made the skinless version and was SO pleased to be able to achieve some of the same yummy flavours that I tend to associate with recipes where I have thrown health considerations to the wind and left the skin on. The problem is that I can no longer enjoy eating the skin the way I once did in earlier-less-health conscious times when we all enjoyed it! I followed this recipe exactly except for adding a two extra herbs to the Italian herbs: rosemary and sage. I drizzled the chicken breasts with olive oil. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Linda! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
