  1. This was just okay. I followed the recipe exactly but did scale it down for 1 chicken breast. Maybe that's why the sauce didn't carmelize. The only good thing I can say is that the diced onion smelled good while cooking.
  2. I made this tonight with only 4 chicken breasts and after reading many reviews decided to use minced garlic 1/8 cup of honey garlic salt and kept the onion. The "sauce" did not caramelize AT ALL. It was like juice. I even raised the temperature to 375 and then higher to 400 (I'd taken the - Read more ...

  7. This was a wonderful easy meal to cook. It was light but went perfect with our side dish...french onion soup! Thanks:)
  8. WOW!!!!! I make a lot of chicken and this may possibly be the best I have ever made! Very delicious although I will say it was a tad on the dry side (which I kind of assumed would be the case in looking at the cook time). I used fresh garlic rather than the powder - Read more ...
