    Chicken breast was a little bit dry, but overall delicious. Very easy to make, which was just what I needed. Added some rice and broccoli as well. Will definitely be making this again.

    Take a jar, take some chicken breasts, put contents of said jar on the chicken breasts, cook, eat. Jamie Oliver had better watch his back, genius chef in the making here! 😂
