Yippie, yii, yea! This is da bomb if there ever was one! This made for a quick lunch-time devour, and don't hesitate to make this, plueeezze. This is not that "hot" because it appears during the cooking time, it really mellows all the flavors out perfectly and gives the chicken, and that magnificent sauce, a very smooth pleasure to the palette, one you will not regret. I wasn't sure about serving the chicken with the mashed potatoes, but it went P U R F E C T L Y! I added cilantro to the top for the photo, and that addition tasted great too, although it was wonderful without it. Thanks for sharing, Caroline!
