Made this last night after watching Tyler's Ultimate. I just changed it up a little bit. These are so incredibly tender and moist. I served with plain white rice, vegetable and garlic bread.

These are great! I used a mixture of oregano, thyme and parsley, I don't have Italian seasoning, and served with white rice, it would be good with egg noodles too! I will definatly make this again! Thanks for a great recipe!
