This recipe turned out great for me. It had excellent taste, it was very easy and it was really beautiful. I might add some cold butter at the end to thicken the sauce a little more, but this time I was trying to keep the calorie count down and try the recipe exactly. Whatever you do though, don't cook the chicken six minutes per side. two to two and a half per side is all that is needed. I will definitely make this again.
