Just wife & I, so I used 2 boneless/skinless half chicken breasts. Used 1 tbls each of butter and oil. The rest of the recipe I followed exactly...we like a lot of sauce. All my wife could say (while eating) was this is really good! We served over brown rice. This is a keeper!

This is a great recipe!! My family loved it.

Here are a few things I differently that might help:

-Add 2 tablespoons of Olive oil to the butter to keep from burning the butter

-Line the pan with foil. This sauce is sticky and covering the chicken makes it very tender!!

I think the next time I will put a cup of rice under the chicken then bake. I will comment on how it turns out.

Hope my tips help!!
