I only used 3 chicken breasts but kept the marinade amounts as given! Also sliced the breasts into fourths so that the marinade would get to more breast surface! Ended up cutting the cooking time down a bit because of that, but the whole thing came together so nicely & was absolutely delicious! Yet another way for me to prepare chicken! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for completing the Baker's Dozen Special in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
This tastes like the kind of meal some cheap bachelor would cook and call his "specialty." It's juicy, easy, quick and cheap. However the flavors in this aren't complex, don't really blend at all and is just this side of edible. I expect to find this in a cookbook from the 1950s, the pseudo-fancy name and all.

<p><img src=http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/ZaarBanners/cookathon-participant.jpg alt=width=300 height=150 />I live in Boise, Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potatoes and Boise State University whose football team plays on the blue smurf turf). My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot. We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California. It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish! They have so many farmer markets that I really have to watch myself, but cooking is so much fun and they have such a variety of things to use.</p> <p>I have two daughters and one has three kids...my angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins. I do miss them when we are gone...they grow so fast.<br /><br />I love to collect and read cookbooks -- way to much from my husbands point of view. I love to watch Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. I have used this site for several months and have loved the recipes and info that comes with them...had to join! <a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/4th%20of%20July/4811_126789.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><br />The only peeve that I really have is going on this site and reading reviews on recipes where the person has totally changed the recipe and didn't like the results so therefore giving low ratings. <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw /> <param name=src value=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/antbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href=http://s596.photobucket.com/albums/tt47/emakki25/?action=view?t=banner1.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i596.photobucket.com/albums/tt47/emakki25/banner1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src=http://i712.photobucket.com/albums/ww129/pneuma2/swaps/no.jpg?t=1248399623 alt=/ /><img src=http://i490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/Banners/WineSwapBanner2009-1.jpg alt=/ /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/4811_176478.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/unratedpart.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/vjuhl/MEPcookathon.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/BBG-AMbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj294/QueenBee49444/CookbookParticipationAugust2009.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/AMBadgeGenTP2009.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Holiday-plaid_HPI.gif alt=/ /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/3Craze-E.jpg border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp340/northwestgal/redbannercopy.jpg border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
