Rated 2 out of 5 by from This Recipe sounds very delightful although maybe i have misread it but reading it over and over again i still dont understand why i would need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees when in the instructions it never mentions putting the chicken in the oven..... also it says in the instructions at the end to Reduce the heat, return the chicken to the skillet and simmer for 15 minutes..... although before that it was never made aware that the chicken needed to be removed from heat. So i am having trouble with this recipe...... I Will Try to cook it the way I am assuming it is to be cooked
