Flavor was quite good and we enjoyed this chicken dish a lot, but the execution was a bit problematic. For one thing, in step 4 when it says to pour the broth and wine over the chicken, that would completely negate all of the toppings on the chicken breasts. I poured the liquid around the chicken. After baking, I topped the chicken breasts with the cheeses and breadcrumbs and dotted with butter, but it would not brown, even after 4 minutes under the broiler. There was also the issue of chicken breasts sitting in broth. I removed the breasts to a platter, placed the pan of broth on the stove top and brought it to a boil, and added about 1/3 c. cream with 1 T. cornstarch mixed in, to create a gravy. It was very flavorful and delicious. Otherwise, you're serving the chicken breasts with nothing more than a watery-thin chicken broth-wine sauce. Maybe some would like it that way. For us, a gravy was more desirable. Again, great flavor!
