I am a dad that cooks each night for my family. This is quick and if you add some capers and a little sauted spinach, even better.

Very Very Good! Had to compensate and use Italian Bread Crums instead of the plain. This dish is great, the chicken was so tender and moist and full of flavor. Few dishes are "Beyond Compare" but this one is strong 3
