This chicken is so flavorful. It tastes like a complex recipe, yet it is so simple to prepare...ya gotta love recipes like that! It is one to go to when you want to "WOW!" your guests yet simple enough for a mid-week dinner. I added an extra pat of butter to the sauce and quickly stirred it in before drizzling over the chicken one it was plated. Other then that, the recipe was made as directed. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe Lauralie. Made and reviewed for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag game.
