Ten stars. This is so good, it hurts. Yes, I know that's nonsense, so here it is: it's so good, you scrape the skillet clean with a spoon or spatula like kids do with a frosting bowl. Just outstanding. This recipe can be simplified in a couple ways, tho. (1) You really don't have to do the whole oven thing. Just put some foil on it. Seal mostly around the rim. Throw a couple hotpads on top of the foil. The rest cooks up quickly enough that the chicken is still hot. (2) No need to pound chicken into schnitzels. I used chicken tenders w/o any pounding and it still cooked up great in the recommended cooking time. Anyway, I'll be making this recipe repeatedly. Love it. ZWT8
