Quick, easy and tasty!

"I made this for my husband and me for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I didn't have cooking spray so I just brushed them with vegetable oil, and I made a cream sauce to go with it (light cream cheese, minced yellow onion, teeny bit of salsa, cumin, and salt), and it was great! I also shredded the chicken after having marinated and cooked it in a grapefruit, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, and olive oil mixture. Gave it great flavor and kept the chicken incredibly moist. "
