Five stars for a "quick and easy" dish. I'd say there's a big payoff with this recipe for something that's so simple to throw together! Browning the chicken in a skillet before finishing in the ...

An excellent recipe I serve over brown rice cooked with chicken boullion. If I don't have a lot of time to fuss in the kitchen, I slice each chicken breast in half width-wise, sprinkle with cum...
