1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro (or dried leaf cilantro)
2 lime wedges

3) Combine 1 tablespoon lime juice, broth and vinegar pour over chicken. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Wrap handle of pan with foil (don’t want to burn the digits). Then cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until thermometer registers 180.
