5 Stars...Easy to make and bursting with flavor. Friends loved it. As chicken finished cooking, removed from pan and tented with aluminun foil. Then reduced sauce by about 2/3rds to get a delicious concentrated sauce. Had a leftover chicken breast the next day at work for lunch; flavors were even deeper and more intense. Already have requests to make it again!
