This was just okay. I thought it was pretty bland and lacked flavor.

I have already made this dish more than once. It has definitely been a hit for a long time. This recipe came out of the 2005 Quick Cooking magazine that I subscribed to. That shows how long it has been around.

This chicken has a great taste and is very moist! The whole family loved it and my friends have already cooked it also. The second time I made it I substituted the garlic for lemon pepper... it was great. I also baked mine in the oven instead of microwaving it (funny about chicken being done).
