    I've actually made this recipe at least 4 times, I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed it, but here it is! I absolutely love this recipe it is SO easy to do and the chicken is always moist and very tender. It has a nice flavor to it, and it is a little bit creamy which I like. I really just love this recipe because it's so easy to do and it tastes good. I will make more in the future as this is a wonderful go to recipe when you've got little time to make a bigger dinner. I love it!

    What a delicious recipe. DH & I loved this tasty, easy to make chicken. The recipe reminds me of chicken that my mom used to make. I made the recipe using 2 chicken breast. The sauce is delicious & the chicken is moist. I will definitely be making this chicken again!

    This was a nice recipe. The chicken was juicy and tender. I doubled the amount of Louisiana hot sauce that it called for, but it still wasn't too hot for us. I didn't have any red bell peppers, so I had to leave those out. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Tag 08.
