    bratty's Note:

    I made this up one evening, when I had chicken breasts thawed out, and some cilantro that I needed to use fairly soon. We both enjoyed it a lot. You may serve this over rice, or not...your call.

      This was very good but I did make some changes. I used bone-in chicken breasts,so I browned them longer and then put them in the microwave for 8 min to make sure they were done.I increased the amt of chicken broth to 1 1/2 cups. I never did see what the 1 T. of butter was for so I just omitted it and I used plain Cheddar cheese.Also,I added some Cajun seasoning to the flour mixture that coated the chicken. Very good dish---thanks!
