  • About This Recipe

    “Fast, tasty and easy–can’t beat that. This is my husband’s absolute favorite baked chicken. I serve with plain rice to soak up the wonderful juices.An easy dish backed in the oven, but also a great recipe to try over the coals when camping.”

  • “What a great recipe! I made it last night for 3 dinner guests. I ended up putting all 4 chicken breasts into a ceramic baking dish then covering it up with foil.It was delicious and Ill be making it again.”

  • “Easy to make and has a wonderful taste.Will definitely make again.”

  • “I really enjoyed the flavor of this recipe. I made plain rice with it, and poured the juices over it. DH and son’s thought there wasn’t enough flavor, maybe I might try adding more cayenne or some tabasco sauce. Also next time I might try putting the chicken in a 13×9 dish and covering it instead of the individual foil.”
