  1. This is my fav section,the quick ones. As you know from the moment I enter kitchen I’m waiting to get out.I tried this,though it turned out a little dry compared to whats seen in the photo, we loved it and thought it so much better than the similar recipe which I sometimes make.

    • Thankyou. I’m glad you liked it.
      As for chicken turning dry please always remember since chicken breasts cook relatively fast(faster than any other cut), you must avoid over cooking or else they turn dry.. the recipe mentions that this does not take very long. Just a few minutes. Check one piece and stop cooking. If timed correctly the chicken is quite moist and tender.This is one of my favorite quick fixes too so I hope you’ll try it again.
