Now here's a good way to use my orange zest. I'll try this as the breast is the only part of chicken I eat. Looks delicious.

Excellent! Thank you. I'll be omitting the butter and roasting the breasts in the oven (same cooking time).

Would omitting the garlic powder change the taste much. I have an allergy to garlic.

In my opinion, recipes are only a launching pad. I see no reason why omitting the garlic would make it less tasty.


You might want to substitute another herb or spice in its place.
