    why do people always use chicken breast? it is very dry and less flavoursome than thigh meat, especially if cooked twice. aprt from that the recipe is fine.

    I agree about the chicken breast, Janetta, I use chicken tenders for most chicken dishes now.
    Very easy to prepare, no fat and very tender they are leg meat minus the bone.
