Top Review by Derf2440

Izzy, this chicken was really excellant!! I used 4 boneless, skinless breast halves and replaced the butter with olive oil. Also cut the sugar back just a bit to 2 ounces. There was almost too much sauce, but it was so delicious!! We ate half for dinner tonight and will have left overs for dinner tomorrow. It very much reminded me of my Mom's chicken, she used to make during rhubarb season. Thanks for posting a keeper! UPDATE: Izzy I had to come back and tell you, our stove was moved to put our new kitchen floor in and so we tried the left over rhubarb chicken and sauce cold for supper. Everyone should know, it was wonderfull!! Just as good cold as it was hot! Again, thank-you for posting, will be making this again soon.
