Molly, this chicken was fantastic! My family loves Luby's so I figured this recipe would be hit and I was right! I halved the recipe, but other than that I followed the recipe as written. The chicken was moist and tender. It went great with Hot Buttered Garlic Noodles and Breaded Italian Green Beans. This will be a regular dinner in my house from now on. Thanks for posting!

This was delicious. I did have to scale it back to make just 3 breasts as there are only three of us. Didn't have any problems. :-)
