The chicken was super moist, and really easy and quick. I used boneless chicken breast and everyone loved it, and made sure I kept the recipe. I would like to add some extra flavorings to it though next time, maybe thyme, or even paprika. I felt like while it was not bland it was nothing special. Good comfort food with mashed potatoes and green beans.
