Chicken Mama Mia

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Caits Mom

We had a delicious chicken dish at a local restaurant and we searched for recipes to taste like it. This seemed to do it. You can also substitute grilled filet mignon for "Filet Mignon Mama Mia" for a tasty and different grilled steak topping.

Very good! I pounded some boneless chicken breasts and sauteed them in the pan in butter before making the sauce. I kept the breasts warm in the oven while I completed the sauce then poured it over the chicken. Delicious sauce - I imagine it would be wonderful over my favorite steak! Served it with Luby's Green Bean's & Almonds #58261. Fabulous meal!
