  1. 5 stars
    Just made this for dinner tonight – was even loved by my toddlers. So easy & delicious. A great weeknight recipe! Wrote it into your cookbook so I could have it handy – Thank you!

  2. This recipe is super easy with great flavor, however the chicken was not completely done. I cut each breast in half before placing in a baking dish, and left in the preheated oven 10-15 minutes longer. The chicken was probably 90% done, so we ended up placing the oven baked breasts in the air fryer just to be safe.
