Tasty and easy to prepare- I used chicken breast pieces (no bone or skin) cut into 4 and enough to make one meal. I really wish now that I had cooked more chicken for another night. This is a great OAMC recipe and much cheaper than buying the frozen prepared chicken portions from the supermarket. Photo also to be posted. Reviewed for January Recipe Swap in the Aus/NZ forum.

The flavor of this chicken was perfect! One of my pickiest eaters really, really liked it! DH thought it was very yummy as well. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and that worked really well. This made great leftovers for DH to take to work the next day. Thanks for a tasty recipe! Made for the October 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
Very quick to make and delicious. I used chicken tenderloins and some chicken schnitzel that I had on hand. We had the schnitzel tonight and I froze the tenderloins. These took about 20mins to cook. I think that you could also experiment with other herbs in place of the parsley. I served with a tossed salad and microwaved potatoes for a fast meal. A "keeper' for us :)
