I made this tonight for my girlfriend's birthday dinner. The chicken turned out moist and delicious! The brie gave it that extra flavor to bring it to a whole 5 stars. We loved the raspberry sauce (and even used half the honey)! Very, very good. We will be making this again. It's also a nice, easy dish to impress guests with. Thanks, Alijen!

I was just looking in my online cookbooks and saw that I hadn't reviewed this yet. I am sorry. We love this recipe. It has such a unique flavor and is very quick and easy to cook. I didnt pound the chicken breast though. Still turned out great. Thanks for a keeper
