Why are you using vegetable oil? It's so bad for you. Why not use one of the monounsaturated oils...olive oil, sesame, sunflower, canola or the combo (Olive, Canola and Grapeseed)? Your body will thank you.

Then use what suits you! Drives me crazy when people act like that if you don't like something don't make it or use what is best for you.

I agree with you dwadding, some people just like to complain.

1 TBS. of veg. oil won'rt kill you anyway.

I'm looking forward to making this chicken dinner; it sounds easy and delicious! I will also add a little poultry seasoning to the mixture; whenever I make a chicken dish I like to add the seasoning as it really gives it a "chicken flavor"!

We all love this chicken! It is so easy to make and full of flavor! Putting the seasoning on the chicken was so easy and it stayed on the chicken. I even put the seasoning under the skin covering the breast to add more flavor to the meat. I made this with potatoes, celery & carrots for a one dish, easy to make meal.
