  1. Never seen a tasty chicken meal like this with just three ingredients. This recipe is indeed a minimlist meal for busy people or beginners. I like fast meals because of my career factors and have a similar recipe but with 6 ingredients (as you will expect of a Mediterranean tradtional food) and chopped garlic (not powder) but I make that only on ocassions. For all other times, meals such as this quick chicken recipe are my choice.

  20. I made this recipe a couple days ago. I substituted boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of the thighs, and dropped the cooking time by about 20 minutes.

    Pretty delicious. Although sodium is ridiculously high in soy sauce – be careful!
