MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 9, 2012

This was really good. I could not find the marinated breasts in my area, I don't think they sell them anymore. I bought boneless breasts and Lawry's Lemon Pepper Marinade. I meant to marinate them for 24 hours, but it turned into 48 because of a schedule change. They were delicious served with a rice piaf on the side.
