      MMMM...I will double the sauce next time; it seemed to have absorbed into the chicken, vanished from the dish. I used some deli ham for the prosciutto to cut the sodium. Made for Pets' Cook-a-Thon in Cooking Photos.

      This was absolutely worth using up the last drop of my brandy for! I served it with your Fontina and Roasted Yellow Pepper Salad #66982. So good and so very beautiful on the plate together. My parents asked me if I was subscribing to Gourmet magazine... too funny. Only those of us who have made Mean Chef's recipes know he's better than a magazine. Another winning taste from his kitchen!

      This IS quick, easy and tasty. I halved it as far as the chicken is concerned but did the full amount of sauce and am glad I did because the sauce is very tasty. I may double the sauce next time. I served this with spinach tortellini and a green salad. The sauce was great on the pasta. Thanks Mean Chef :)
