This is hands-down some of the best chicken I’ve eaten ~ well, that is, that’s not deep-fried!
If you like garlic, and moist and tender chicken, this recipe, which I found here, is for you!
I added extra garlic and plenty of seasoned black pepper; however, the next time, I will be doing as the original recipe states...
“To take the recipe to another level, about 10 minutes before the cooking time is finished, drizzle the top of the chicken with a little pasta sauce, and then sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Return to oven to bake for 10 minutes until the sauce is hot and cheese has melted.”
This is some delicious chicken! Bill and I agreed ~ it's “finger-lickin’ good!"
