“I love chicken and am constantly in search of a way to make it different and special. It is my belief that this dish is how I won my way into the heart of the man of my dreams! It’s not always easy to make a main dish just for 2… but this one is a snap! Your butcher or deli person can butterfly the chicken breasts for you. You can also use boneless thighs.”
