Reviews for Easy Italian Chicken
"I would make this again but with a bit of flare involved (i.e.salt, garlic salt, and other ingredients that aren't diabetic friendly)"
"This was tasty and quick. I added 1/4 tsp. dried oregano, used 1 clove minced garlic for the garlic powder, and substituted blenderized diced tomatoes. I sprinkled the breasts with basil and cooked them in a little olive oil."
