  • “Made this according to the recipe, although I did cut it in half for just the 2 of us! I also used whole-grain bread crumbs & the resulting chicken was DELICIOUS! Loved the combo of spices & will certainly be making this again & again, ’cause we do have chicken breasts often! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC recipe tag]”

  • “This was yummy!I omitted teh cayenne pepper and ginger and used mayo as suggested.I pressed 3 cloves of fresh garlic into the mayo and mixed then dipped the chicken breast in that and then used italian seasoned breadcrumbs!Thanks for posting!”

  • “Yum.Way more garlicky than I thought it would be, but that’s a good thing.I used cornbread crumbs and it turned out great.Thanks for something new for us to try.”

  • “I used chicken thighs as that’s all we had.Probably would have been better with breasts but was nice enough.Hubby liked – that’s all that matters lol!”

  • “These were very good! Definitely moist. I used light mayo — didn’t have yogurt. I added more garlic since we love garlic. In the keeper file! Thanks.”

  • “The chicken came out moist & perfect. I added more garlic than the recipe called for, and would probably not do it again — too garlicy!”

  • “Made this for PAC 2006.Great recipe for a weeknight!Very easy recipe and it is in the oven within minutes!Next time, I would put a little less garlic as I felt there was a little too much for our taste.Thanks Zaney for a quick and good recipe!”
