Instructions

  1. Stir together all the ingredients except the chicken breasts and pour into a large Ziploc bag.
  2. Add the chicken breasts and marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
  3. Place the marinaded chicken breasts on an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees F, uncovered, for about 45 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. I use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is between 170 and 180 degrees F.
  4. Do not throw out the marinade. While the chicken is cooking simmer it over low heat and brush it on the chicken about every 10 minutes as it cooks.

Recipe Notes

The total prep time reflects the marinating time as well. The cook time will vary from 45-60 minutes depending on the actual size of your chicken breasts,. Use a meat thermometer to be sure they are completely cooked.
