Top Review by Caroline Cooks

Yes, yes!!! this is a winner. DING DING!! Since I just had one large chicken breast, I sliced it. Followed the recipe with the exception of (I forgot) to add the capers (yes, I had some in the fridge) and added a chopped Roma tomato subbed for the canned tomatofor one breast. MMM. Wonderful fresh taste and low-cal...delicious. Made for the Mediterranean Cruise event in Cooking Photos.
