      This was great, hubby thinks I should be able to give it 6 stars. Super easy to put together. I thought it was a little excessive to put the butter ontop of the chicken which already had melted mozzarella but I did it anyways and it was delicious. I used the left over butter for my broccoli.

      I tried it and it was very good. I used parm/romano cheese. I marinated the chicken for about 6 hours or so and then cooked it on my George Foreman. Very nice! Thanks for posting!
