  • Wash and dry the chicken breasts.  If your chicken breast are small, leave them as they are, if they’re large like mine, cut each breast in half.  Place pieces of chicken between a plastic wrap and flatten each piece by using a flat side of a meat tenderizer.

  • Place chicken breasts on a greased baking dish.  Brush chicken with the sauce, then turn over and brush the other side.

  • Bake at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, and then take the dish out, flip the chicken over and bake for another 15-20 minutes.  Brush with sauce every 5-10 minutes while baking.  This will create a beautiful glaze on the top of the chicken.
