"The ingredients sounded so strange but I decided to be channel my inner chef & try this several years ago. Boy was I surprised! It was a nice combination of flavors! My husband & I loved it! And I even got my extremely picky 13 yr. old son to eat some of it. I've made this a lot since then & it's a family favorite. The ingredients are sure staples in our household & it's so easy & quick. A salad & some veggies steamed in a bag & you have a healthy weeknight dinner!"

"This is one of my husbands favorite meals. I skip browning the chicken - just use thin sliced chicken breasts and pour the sauce over them and bake them about 20-25 minutes. Perfect every time!"
