I found this in a diabetic cookbook I was given. I had to cook a little longer then started in the recipe, but it was a wonderful meal. I served it with white rice. Points 5.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Simply awesome. I followed the instructions as it is. I had cooked it in a small skillet one at a time. I cooked 4. Only change I made, at the end I put one tea spoon pesto & whipped cream, sprinkled chilly flakes. It was so juicy & succulent and super delicious. My children loved it. I shall make it again and again.

So good! It's messy to make, but it's worth it. This chicken is filled with flavor, super-juicy, and looks great on the plate. It's probably a good idea to cook the breast for longer though, because cooking chicken for that short amount of time can be a health hazard. I doubled the cooking time, and the chicken was still moist and delicious.

This was good! We made as written and also had to cook an extra 10-15 minutes. Thanks for sharing.
