This was soooo good! I used apple juice with a drop of vanilla instead of the brandy, but kept to the ingredients. We had it with broccoli and rice, I'll try it with mashed potatoes next time. Thanks for posting Wendy.

This was fantastic-restaurant quality! It was a really nice blend of flavours that I want to eat again TOMORROW! The only alteration I made was to halve the oil and butter in step 3, and omit the oil in step 10. I used garlic chives as we have them growing in the garden.

This is a delicious (and quick!) way to make chicken! I had to sub a little, didn't have chives so I used sliced green onion tops, didn't have a lime, so I splashed in about 1/2 tsp. of lemon juice. It turned out great! Thanks for posting! :o)

You should have named this recipe "Magic Chicken" - now you see it, now it's gone! I love cooking with fresh herbs and the parsley and chives add great flavor and wonderfull color. I might try an extra tbls of brandy because it adds a "magic" touch.

Absolutely wonderful recipe. I didn't have lime juice so I substituted lemon juice and the taste was great. The chicken breasts do cook quickly so make sure not to overcook. Quick and easy, I will definitely be making this again.

Excellent Sauce, wonderful flavor!!! Easy preparation!!!!I will be making this many more times in the future!!!I used bone in chicken thighs. I did not have fresh parsley so I used 1 1/2 TBS dried.

I have made this dish many times but have failed to rate it. My family loves it. Not having any brandy I used white wine instead. I also added 2 minced cloves of garlic because we are garlic freaks! Yum yum. Can't wait to have it again!

This was wonderful! I used dry sherry instead of brandy and I used 1/2 cup of chicken broth. Other than that, I made as directed. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks for the great recipe.
