This is very yummy and makes a good weeknight meal. I serve it with short-grain brown rice with olive oil and grated parmesan cheese and a green vegetable.

Incredibly delicious! I used chopped green olives and fresh basil and oregano. I also pounded my chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness. As you said, this is an easy weeknight meal. Served with brown rice, fresh tomato caprese salad, and fresh sliced peaches. Thank you for sharing!
