Made this last night and everyone loved it, quick, easy, and very good! I left out the butter and flour, doubled the rest for extra sauce for the rice. Awesome will be making again for sure.

This is a yummy quick and easy dinner! I used red wine vinegar since I didn't have balsamic (will use next time but, was still good), Served with rice and baby carrots drizzled with pan sauce, Will make again!

My son could not stop raving about this dish as he ate. Thank you so much for our new favorite. I, too, added salt and pepper and some garlic powder to the flour before dredging the chicken. Since we only cooked one chicken breast, we only made half the sauce recipe. The yield was really minimal, barely enough to coat the chicken pieces. Next time, I would double the sauce. Thank you again for sharing.
