  • Made this for dinner tonight. I baked the chicken in the pan I marinaded it in...there was enough liquid that it poached the chicken as it baked making it very juicy. Oh, I used 1 Tbs olive oil in place of the 2 Tbs canola oil, and I topped the chicken with fresh cilantro & avocado when it was done. - 10/13/10

  • Awesome chicken dish! If you are cooking in a pan be sure to pat dry the chicken before cooking otherwise it ends of boiling instead of sauteeing. Very tender and moist too. I will absolutely make again!!! - 9/17/09
