Reviewed for Pick A Chef (PAC) October 2012. Loved this chicken and it was a very easy dish to prepare. Made as written, although served with Honey Glazed Carrots (Simple Honey Glazed Carrots) and steamed beans. I used sorghum flour to dredge the chicken to make this recipe suitable for my gluten-free diet. Photos also being posted
