My son is extremely picky. No cheese, no pasta, no pasta sauce. Made this tonight. I subsituted BBQ sauce for the honey-mustard dresssing on half of the breasts. He gobbled it down - even with a small sprinkling of cheese. Miracles never cease to exist. I will be making this again - yummy (I prefered the honey mustard - nice flavor change). But espeically liked I had dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. It's a keeper.
