Great recipe! I often use chicken thighs with or without the bone and it turns out great. The sauce is delicious and simple to make. serve with roasted potatoes and salad for a perfect dinner

I've been making this recipe for years and it has become a family favorite and go-to recipe for company. I use panko crumbs, substitute olive oil for butter, and omit the sauce. The chicken is always moist and juicy, so it doesn't need the sauce (and I don't need the calories!)

I love this chicken recipe & have made it many times. Works find with skinless breasts as well. Don't bother with the sauce, chicken has enough flavour on its own.
