easy to make, a one dish meal (except for the skillet used for the chicken breasts. The recipe wasn't clear on whether or not to cover when baked; it needs covered! Very tender, juicy chicken with a delicate flavor, complements well with a glass of the wine that is added to it. Also, as a 16 year veteran RN of the coronary intensive care unit, I appreciate that is very low in fat and calories! Other veggies (peas come to mind) could easily be added.
