    Jessica Costello's Note:

    Very simple meal, just add some veggies on the side, or a spinach salad with yummy breadsticks. Not as much work as you would think.

      This dish was sooooo good. I made exactly as directed, but had to cook a little longer than stated, but the chicken breast that I used were pretty large, and I may not have pounded them quite thin enough. But they were so tender and they looked so pretty when I pulled them out of the oven. Thanks for the great recipe!!!!
