Beautiful, spicy (I may adjust the cayenne down next time), incredibly easy to make.

This is such a simple and wonderful recipe. The ingredient list is perfect with just the right amount of seasoning. The only change I made was to flatten the chicken breasts slightly for more even cooking. Into my Cooking for 2 cookbook it goes.
