    CarolAnn's Note:

    This is a super, fast recipe. It comes from an old, out of print cookbook of quick, easy recipes. This is great served over rice or mashed potatoes.

      So simple and so mouth-watering! I doubled the recipe, eye-balled all the ingredients, and dusted the chicken with flour (as previously suggested). Served with whole wheat spaghetti, we couldn't get it in our mouths fast enough. I'll add sauted veggies next time.

      I'm the daughter that MamaDonna referred to in her rating ... and my husband and I really love this recipe. So flavorful and satisfying ... dieter or not! Tastes great with sauteed zuchinni, squash, and mushrooms. Or, if you're not watching the carbs, this is delicious with basil linguine!
