Very quick and easy, served with rice and steamed broccoli. I subbed turkey breast cutlets (didn't need to pound them) and used some chicken broth instead of wine to deglaze the pan. I will be making this again, and I will try adding some garlic powder to the mix (and a tad bit more pepper-we like it "SNAPPY" :) Made for Spring 2011 PAC game.

Very nice, quick and easy dinner. I used chicken breasts pre-pounded by the butcher and followed the instructions exactly. Dinner was on the table in 30 minutes and was very tasty. I served with buttered noodles, broccoli and salad. It was a simple meal that everyone in our house liked.
