Recipe by Just Cher

This is a chicken dish that has a wonderful aroma & tastes like it took hours to prepare and the presentation deems it to be elegant enough for those special occassions. I serve it with rice & asparagus

This is a lovely dish suitable for guests and easy enough for every day. The sauce is light, refreshing, and delicious! The only modification I made was to lightly brown my chicken breasts in olive oil prior to placing them in the oven. Thanks for a great recipe, Cher!
