This was sooooo good, I was very proud of being able to cook it until it was JUST done. I did change this up a bit though I added some vegetable oil to the sauce along with about 3 tbs of water because it didnt seem like enough ( I shortened the recipe to only accomodate 3 breasts). I also rubbed salt and pepper on the chicken first, and added crushed garlic to the sauce. The last few minutes I used the broiler to give it a slightly crispy top and I sprinkled some mozzerella cheese on top. VERY GOOD! Next time I think this would be good on top of pasta with sauce and maybe a little basil sprinkled on top would be good too. VERY GOOD, Highly reccomend recipe with my variations. Probably would have been a tad bland without garlic or cheese.

YUCK! My husband and I could BARELY finish this. Flavor is terrible. I won't make this again.

INCREDIBLE! I made a couple of modifications as per other reviews. I added 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp chicken bouillion granules, and 1 tsp basil. I marinated the chicken in the mixture for 4 hours before baking. Absolutely delicious, very flavourful!

I cut this recipe in half and used a 9x( pan - but otherwise followed it to the letter. I served it with rice and a onion/bell pepper mix and it was awesome. Definitely keep the sauce to put on the rice. Delish!! And easy, too. I made the sauce and poured it on the chicken and put the whole thing in the fridge for a few hours so that all I had to do was pop it in the oven half hour before dinner.

This was very tasty! I marinated it for about 2 hours, then cooked it in the marinade. Toward the end of cooking I topped each breast with a mix of parm/mozz cheeses then broiled it until golden brown. Everyone loved it.

I always thought of myself as an oregano fan...until this dish. I didn't see anything special about it. It was rather bland...even served over rice with a touch more soy sauce. Boyfriend and daughter gave this one thumbs up but there are sooo many other great chicken dishes out there that I think I'll just pass this one over. Thanks anyways.

Good recipe. The chicken didn't require the whole 30 minutes to bake, so next time I'll only cook it for 20-25 minutes. I tossed bow tie pasta in the marinade after the chicken was finished & it turned out great! Thanks!!
