The ingredients used for the sauce in this light and healthy chicken recipe adds so much flavor to chicken breasts. The chicken breasts, topped with some of the sauce, are individually wrapped in foil prior to cooking, which helps to retain the natural juices and the tenderness of the meat as it cooks.
