"This is a great recipe! Very flavorful and easy. I served this for the Mediterranean-themed night of our Supper Club, and everyone loved it. I used Kraft's Greek vinaigrette, which worked great. Also, I had never really cared for sun-dried tomatoes, but this recipe changed my mind! This is definitely a winner!"

"Sounds great, and gives an alternative to baked chicken, however I am wondering if the Greek Vinaigrette referred to is a combination of olive oil, lemon, oregno, thyme, salt and pepper. Joel"

"You can do this with a whole chicken as well. Mix the Greek vinaigretee and the juice of one lemon. Place the lemon inside the chicken and then pour the vinaigrette over the chicken and bake in a 350* oven for about 90 minutes or until 160* meat Themometer"

"I made this recipe the other day. It had amazing flavor, and was extremely easy. I used sundried tomato vinaigrette and left out the sliced sundried tomatoes. Using the foreman grill it took 5 minutes flat! Couldn't ask for much more."
