"This is so yummy =]"

MY REVIEW

"I actually made this twice. I used the cut-up fryer the first time but it is just too much grease or fat for us although the chicken I got was no more fatty than most. The second time I used 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts and 2 boneless skinless thighs just to have white and dark meat. Much better."
