When it comes to cooking or eating chicken, I always go for the breasts. It's the chicken part with the lowest number of fats and calories, mind you. And don't get me started on the chicken skin. As much as you can - and if you're cholesterol levels are quite high - try to avoid chicken skin no matter how tasty and enticing they may be. You'll be doing your heart a very big favor. Did you know that the fats in the chicken breast and pork tenderloin are very much comparable? While thigh parts of the chicken may contain higher saturated fats than that of a lean cut of pork. So that is why when it comes to chicken, I prefer the breasts.

Now, going back to the recipe. Here's what you'll need.
