    I made this recipe on a whim, and to do something different with chicken. I had all of the ingredients with the exception of olive oil. I used vegetable oil in it's place. This recipe was outstanding. There was more flavor that I thought and the chicken was very tender. My family loved it and they hate tomatoes. I have saved this to my recipe box and I will be making this again.

    So good & so easy. I served this with rice& beans for friends & it was a hit! I used Hunts diced tomatoes with garlic & added 2-3tbs of Sofrito & it had just the right amount of heat. I also had salted tostones with honey as an app. Def making this time I'm not sharing!

    This is my favorite quick and easy chicken meal! I just use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of the breast- only because we prefer the flavor of the thighs. I cook some sazon rice with chorizo stuffed olives and I have a meal.
