Made this to take to a neighbor's home for their supper, but had to have a taste of it before delivery ~ I had 3 extra chicken breasts I'd made the day before, so used them here! VERY, VERY TASTY CHICKEN DISH, & a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick-A-Chef]

This a very nice and different chicken recipe. It is quick and easy. I used fresh carrots and it worked just fine.

This was easy and good. I had an extra Costo chicken to use. I left out carrots but added chopped scallions and some orange zest. I used the cayenne which was nice. Thanks! It was just perfect since I felt too tired to cook but didn't want to simply reheat the roasted chicken.
