    Absolutely superb! I served it with brown rice and a salad and everybody raved. Don't change a thing. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    I followed the recipe as described, changing only the method of cooking. We grilled the breasts on a indoor grill instead of broiling in the oven. I myself thought it was nice but my husband thought it was ok. The breasts did turn out very juicy but did lack something...I'm not quite sure what. Being of Greek descent this recipe would not pass as 'Greek' at Papou's home. Maybe next time I will add more lemon & oregano. All in all I would make it again.

    This was good, just a tad dry. I put it on linguini with a little olive oil. It was better the next day, sliced and put on salad. I will make it again. I did it just as she said.
