    this was ok. I couldn't find the pre seasoned chicken, so I seasoned my own with lemon pepper. I think cooking the peppers and chicken in maybe a little chicken broth might have made the seasoning pop a little more.

    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.
