Reviews for Tender Herbed Chicken
"I've been looking for a way to cook chicken breasts that was easy, tasty & not dried out...I think I've found it! I modified it a bit. I only marinated it for 3 hours, substituted soy sauce for lime juice, red pepper for cayenne and did not use any aniseed. My family loved it. It's definitely a keeper!"
