I enjoyed this chicken for dinner tonight with a side salad. Next time I make this, I am going to double the garlic, butter, brown sugar and water because the sauce is wonderful and I want more of it! I loved the addition of the tomato and swiss cheese on top. I thought I had fresh basil in the refrigerator, but it was mint so I just lightly sprinkled some Italian blend spice on top of the cheese. Thanks so much for a nice meal tonight, jonesies.
