This was great. I used Panko breading but first brushed a tsp of light ranch dressing on each breast to allow the panko to stick. I also used turkey bacon in order to cut the calories and I did reduce the cheese and butter and olive oil as I was using a very good non stick pan and did not need all the fat. Yummo!
I made this tonight and it turned out delicious! thanks so much for sharing!!
I think I needed to add more garlic. This tasted kind of like a cold sweet and sour chicken-think german potato salad. I will make again to see if it is better with more garlic.
