I made this for dinner tonight and let me say....YUM! My kids are nuts about any chicken, but boneless skinless is always a winner. The chicken was so tender. I used those thinly sliced chicken breasts, so mine didn't take the full 20 minutes and I had to turn the heat down a bit as they were cooking too quickly. Those tiny adjustments were perfect, though. Also, I didn't see a measurement for the garlic, so I used 1 teaspoon minced. Also, after blotting the breasts, I used about a tablespoon of oil in the skillet. I topped our breasts with havarti slices...heaven! Thanks college Girl, for this yummy recipe!
