I made this as a special dinner for my love on Valentine's Day. It was excellent! He raved about it the whole time he was eating it. I loved it too! I made roasted red potatoes , and a beet salad with goat cheese. walnuts, and gorgonzola cheese with a strawberry vinaigrette to have with it. Perfect Trio!

Oh yum! We really loved this chicken - it was moist and full of flavor. Went well with brown and wild rice mix. I went easy on the butter to make it more WW friendly.

Great chicken even with my subs -- I used cajun seasoning in place of the poetry seasoning and only had one egg. Enjoyed the chicken with rice and broccoli. Thanks for sharing!
