Really nice chicken recipe that comes together pretty easy as well. I used chicken breast tenderloins but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. While the chicken was tasty, the sauce earned the 5 stars for this recipe for me. I will make this again.

Really nice combination ! Dh was truly impressed. I adjusted for 2 boneless/skinless breasts, and served with saffron rice and chard from the garden. We are now using Panko for breading on many recipes -- nice and crunchy -- never soggy. Thanks for posting, Barb.
