I saw this recipe in my newest Cooking Light magazine and I couldn’t wait to make it. It was a simple and quick recipe with very little clean-up. The chicken turned out moist, tender, and so flavorful. I toned down the crushed pepper a bit so it wouldn’t be too spicy for the kids and they absolutely loved it. My husband and I both really enjoyed it too. I am looking forward to making this chicken again and again.
