I am SO EXCITED because chicken breasts are back at $1.99/lb. this week at Publix, so be sure to stock up on a few packs! My sister-in-law didn't know that you could freeze chicken, all you do is pop it in the freezer and then thaw in the refrigerator. So just in case there's one other soul out there who doesn't know, YOU CAN FREEZE CHICKEN! (I really was pretty shocked she didn't know that but maybe she's not the only one, I know her hubby's laughing at me right now!)
I found this recipe in a cookbook called Fatfree and Ultralowfat recipes (sounds delicious, huh?) MANY years ago, and it's not bad for a healthy way to broil up chicken. We actually like it well enough that when I can't come up with anything else to do with chicken I make this. It's really quick and easy, and the chicken stays tender because of the cooking spray.
