    Excellent! Best of all, husband says “It’s a keeper!”

    This was delicious! I couldn’t find 6 small breasts, so I used 3 large ones that weighed about 1 1/2 pounds. I cut them into large chunks. It baked beautifully and the whole family loved it.

    I made this for my husband, who is doing the Body For Life program, and he loved it so much that he asks for it at least once a week now.

    We did not enjoy the flavor of this dish. Apparently we are the only ones with sour taste buds on this one!

  • Mad Woman

    I hated it, it was the most worse thing I have ever tasted my husband and my kids hated it too that is one meal I will never prepare again.
