"It was very easy to make and it came out very tender and juicy. I amde it with the russian dressing. I think next time I will try it with the onion soup mix as I think it needed more zip."

"I have made similar in a crockpot recipe, but it has NEVER come out as tender, juicy, and glazed as this recipe did. I will certainly make it again!"

"This is a super simple recipe that results in a very good tasting piece of chicken. I used the Russian dressing and left out the salt and pepper. I will definitely be making this again and again."
