“This recipe is adapted from a Cooking Light recipe and refined with changes in the seasonings to enhance the flavor of the otherwise bland chicken breast. It is delightfully easy to prepare and results in a dish with full complex flavors. Recipe serves two but can be doubled with no trouble. Reheats well for lunch the next day.”
