French Style Chicken Breasts

"I got this recipe from an old cookbook so many years ago I have forgotten which one. It is a wonderfully simple and elegant dish I have served many many times to company. Great with a rice dish and broccoli or green beans."

    I served this for guests last night and everyone loved it! It was simple to prepare, but looked and tasted like a gourmet dish. A mixed green salad and baby new potatoes alongside made a very nice meal.

    This dish is wonderful! Not only is it easy to prepare, but it has a beautiful presentation. I'm not sure which I liked best, the chicken or the sauce! We served it with asparagus and mushrooms... what a meal! Thanks so much for posting your recipe, it is a keeper :)


I spent 20 years in the US Navy, four of them in Italy. It was there I developed a passion for Italian food (and gained 30 pounds). All the recipes I make, I have to admit, I never measure ANYTHING. I just pour stuff in until it looks right. I have a few favorite recipes (one of which is my lasagne) and rarely use a cookbook anymore.
