FANTASTIC raves me! This is a GREAT recipe! ok, sliced chicken breasts horizontally, then cut in three, I like a thinnner, pounded chicken breast to see! Warmed pieces in oven til all were browned, TRUE! Couldn't help myself but added 1/2 cup white wine too! Makes you feel special as if you did fuss for dinner, This recipe IS a winner! Next time MIGHT consider pureeing peas, As think the drizzle sauce on chicken to me would please! THANKS! Note: Because I cut breasts in so many pieces, TRUE! Took ALOT more flour to dredge and added oil to HOT pan after every batch too!Reply
