It was SO salty - 1 tsp was way too much and 1 Tbsp of pepper? Yikes! To get rid of the saltiness I accidentally turned it into something that tastes like chicken cacciatore (more tomatoes, sugar, Italian seasoning, tomato paste, wine, mushrooms). At least it's healthy! lol - 1/16/13
Does a chicken have one breast? As boneless, skinless chicken is often packaged is a chicken breast 1 section or 2 sections? I don't know the term chicken breast is subjective.
The calorie count in this recipe is based on 2.1 lbs of boneless, skinless breast meat, 31 cal per ounce. - 8/11/10
