Wonderful tasting chicken. We loved everything about it - from the chicken down to the last drop of sauce. Used mascarpone and instead of pancetta, used hardwood smoked bacon. YUM, YUM! Thank you, Breezer, for sharing this keeper. Made it for FYC and Pick Me tag games.

This is a fabulous recipe! I put this winner into my Best of 2018 file. The chicken is cooked perfectly but the sauce was the real winner. Wow, was it ever delicious! The only change I made was to use a peas and carrot mix since that is what was in my freezer. Thank you!
