MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 26, 2013

We are low-sodium and am always on the lookout for flavorful meals within our sodium restrictions. What a wonderful combination of flavors. I marinated skinless/boneless breasts. I was going to broil them but sauteed them instead, I didn't want to heat up the house with the oven. They were delicious and OMG did my house smell good!  Definitely gonna make this again.
