You'll never guess where this recipe came from. I called Direct TV and the guy I spoke with started talking about food while making our changes.

He told me about this chicken recipe. He said this technique makes the chicken very moist and tender inside. I'm thinking it's because of rubbing each piece with olive oil.

I assured him that I would try it and I'm so glad I did because it's a keeper. Just wish I could remember his name.
