Made this for ZWT 5's trip to Spain and loved everything about it. It has outstanding flavor and was easy for me to incorporate into my Weight Watcher's eating plan. I used boneless, skinless breasts but otherwise cooked as directed. Thank you so much for posting it and I have it now safely tucked into my cookbook of chicken favorites!
