This recipe came out of the Oregonian from Portland, Oregon by Hall Street Bar & Grill in Beaverton. When I made this I left out the cayenne pepper in both places. It was too spicy for me.

This was very good! I did cut back on the butter to about 4TBS total and I cut back on the cayenne by about half. I also used crushed tomatoes because I was out of sauce. Oh, and I doubled the basil and cumin.
Thanks for the great recipe!

Easy and good, but whoa...spicy! Next time I'll use about 1/4 of the cayenne. I cut way back on the butter, using only about 2 tablespoons for the sauce and then grilling the chicken instead of sauteeing in butter. Lazyme's review had a great idea; double the sauce and save half for next time, which will make for a really fast dinner.
