A yummy and simple dish that is still impressive. You can use as many garlic cloves as you like, less if you have a problem with garlic, more if you are allergic to vampires.

This was so easy to throw together! I made it with boneless, skinless breasts (personal preference), and did it all on the stove, covering for the majority of the cook time. I also reduced the margarine to 2 tablespoons. It was a hit with all of us! Thanks for a great recipe Mirjam! I will make it again for sure.
