Personal Notes:
I made this the other night and it has become a favorite ... we all liked it. Mom said she ate so much she was paying for it for several days! Simple, easy and very tasty!

NOTE: I cut the chicken breast in half (lengthwise) because I don't like thick chicken breast, so it increased the servings from 4 to 8, I also decreased the time baking the chicken so they wouldn't dry out, I baked them only the 20 mins. I'm sure leaving them whole is just as good! Just a personal preference.
