    We halved the amount of chicken in the recipe, but being garlic lovers, kept that as is. The chicken and tomato sauce turned out deliciously, but the garlic barely cooked through at all. Next time we plan to pre-cook the garlic a bit, not counting on the garlic to cook enough at a (very low) 180F for 45 minutes. Also might want to increase the amount of pasta and tomato sauce relative to the number of breasts you cook.  -  22 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
