READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Babs in Toyland

This recipe is from a restaurant in Atlanta which is no longer in business, but this was one of their signature dishes and is truly delicious. (The marinating time is not included in the prep time)

Simply yum. Next time I will either pound the chicken breasts or cut them into half the thickness and then cut the marinade time down to about 30 minutes. I may also try adding capers to the sauce.
