    Thanks Donman! This has become a favorite of mine. I am on an extremely low sodium diet. Without the salt, this dish is tasty enough!

    My husband just came from the store with 3 packages of boneless chicken breasts on sale for $1.79 a pound. That is cheap around here! So your chicken is on the menu! Thanks

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was every bit as good as you said, it was succulent and juicy and flavourful. And it couldn't be easier! Very healthy too. I would recommend this to everyone.
    Cheers
