My family likes white meat. I used this recipe with boneless Chicken Brest halves, cut in half again. These are some very picky eaters mind you. They were wary of how it looked, however, there was not one piece left! I served with broccoli, and did not make the dipping sauce, as I did not have the ingredients. A successful family dinner that was not difficult to make. Thank you!
