Crowd-pleasing Baked Chicken

This chicken dish has been a favorite in my family since as long as I can remember.  My siblings and I used to call this dish "Moisty Chicken" simply because it is just that!  As I got older and more into cooking I amended the recipe to kick up the flavor and make it slightly healthier.  This was one of the first dishes I made for my now husband when we first started dating.   It's easy to make and takes less than an hour to cook including prep!  This recipe is perfect for a weeknight dinner or in my case, first home-cooked date night dinner!
