Introduction

This recipe is great on its own or cut the breasts into strips for other uses. I usually make a large batch and freeze the strips. The chicken is great in any recipe calling for cooked chicken. Chicken fahitas, pasta sauces or salads are my family's favourites.

I also freeze the marinated chicken in the ziploc bag. I buy in volume when on sale even if I don't have the time to cook it right away.

    I also added some fresh garlic and cilantro. Great for kabobs with veggies and brown rice. A keeper! - 1/27/10

  • SO easy, versatile and delicious! Our grill is on the fritz, so I cooked these in a non-stick frying pan -- probably tastes even better on the grill. I squeezed a little fresh lime over the top, which added some nice acidity. Will definitely be making this recipe again! - 7/22/13
