    yooper's Note:

    Another winning low carb entree! This calls for bone in chicken breasts with skin, which keeps the meat exceptionally juicy. You could sub skinless, boneless breasts, but make sure to adjust cooking time and temp so the meat does not dry out. From Gourmet magazine.

      This is another dish I choose for pick your chef. I choose it as it was low in carbs and sounded interesting. I used chicken beast on the bone as for the most part we prefer it as it does not dry out the meat. I followed the recipe exactly except I added an additional 1/4 tsp hot pepper flakes as we like the heat.The results were wonderful juicy chicken bursting with flavor. Thank you Mark, like your bacon mushroom chicken this will be made often.

      I haven't posted a review before but I enjoyed this soooo much I just had to comment. I didn't have bone in chicken so I used boneless skinless and it still came out great. The only thing we added was some garlic hot sauce for dipping (we like it spicy) but the chicken is excellent by itself. Great recipe! And it's low carb too! Thanks for a keeper!

      Very nice flavor, although I would have preferred more heat and less oregano taste. A very easy dish to prepare, and nice to be able to use the stove top. I did allow it to simmer for almost an hour, and the chicken was nice and moist.
